Overall Objectives

Vision is a key function to sense the world and perform complex tasks. It has a high sensitivity and a strong reliability, given that most of its input is noisy, changing and ambiguous. Better understanding biological vision will have a strong scientific, medical, societal and technological impact in the near future. In this context, Biovision aims at developing fundamental research as well as technological transfer along two axes: (i) developing of high tech vision aid-systems for low-vision patients and (ii) modeling of the visual system for normal and distrophic conditions, targeting applications for low-vision and blind patients. These axes are developed in strong synergy, involving a large network of national and international collaborators with neuroscientists, physicians, and modellers.
