'Time is vision' after a stroke
University of Rochester researchers studied stroke patients who experienced vision loss and found that the patients retained some visual abilities immediately after the stroke but these abilities diminished gradually and eventually disappeared permanently after approximately six months. Early intervention in the form of visual training appears to stop this gradual loss of visual processing that stroke victims may experience. It is therefore important for occipital stroke patients to receive visual training early on after a stroke. (2020-05-22)
