Neural degeneration and plasticity following damage to the post-chiasmal visual pathway

Abstract:

Hemianopia is a disorder where a patient loses vision in one half of their visual field, following damage to the post-chiasmal visual pathway. If the hemianopia does not spontaneously resolve within the first few months, the prognosis for recovery is poor, with very few patients recovering vision in the affected area of the visual field.
