The TREAT VISION team: investigating connections between the eye and the brain
TREAT VISION was created in 2005 by the French Ministry of Research and Higher Education, the Laboratoire de Psychologie et NeuroCognition of the French National Center for Science Research (CNRS), and the Fondation ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild in Paris. The team carries out multidisciplinary research on neurovisual and cognitive functions and disorders.
Headed by Sylvie Chokron, CNRS Research Director, the team brings together specialists from the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, neuroimaging, interventional neuroradiology, ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, and neuro-ophthalmology. These researchers and practitioners seek to understand, prevent, diagnose and correct neurovisual disorders.
In addition to support from the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations, the team’s work is funded by a number of scientific institutions (the CNRS, the French Ministries of Research, Health and National Education and the Rhône-Alpes regional council). With this backing, the team pursues research and collaborative projects using new technology, such as functional neuroimaging. These projects are carried out both in France and internationally.
