Abstract: The visual pathways are essential for human vision, stretching from the retinas of the eyes, via the anterior visual pathways and the optic radiations, to the primary visual cortex in the occipital lobe. Injury to these structures will lead to visual impairment – from small deficits to blindness. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) can be used to assess nervous pathways in the brain, non-invasively and in vivo. Diffusion properties, measured by DTI, have been shown to correspond to pathology in nervo... more
