The aim of the research project is to study the neural mechanisms, either cortical or subcortical, underlying the possible shift from inconscious to conscious vision in patients with hemianopia as a result of damage to the central visual pathways and visual cortical areas. We will focus on the possible contribution of the Superior Colliculus and of the extrastriate and striate cortical visual areas of either the intact or the lesioned cerebral hemisphere to the presence of "blindsight" or to the recovery of conscious visual function. We will use behavioural tests specifically tailored to assess the presence of inconscious vision in the blind hemifield (blindsight) together with Event-Related Potential (ERP) recordings and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)scannings to ascertain the neural mechanisms subserving recovery of conscious visual function.
