Couple of links for learning about vision development

  • Current understanding of what infants see.  An article written by Lea Hyvarinen and others that reviews the current literature to give a great overview of how infants see and how vision develops in the first year of life.   Lea Hyvarinen is known, among other things, for developing the Lea symbols (circle, heart, square, house) used to test visual acuity in young children.   The article is open access, which means it is freely available.
  • Light, Spike, and Sight: the Neuroscience of Vision.  This is an online edX course that runs for 4 weeks, starting November 18, 2014.  “In this course, we take you from the physics of focusing light onto the retina, to the processing of colors, form, and motion, and finally to the interpretation of visual information in the cortex.” The course can be audited for free.  I’ve already registered, and if you’re planning to take the class, please let me know.
