Reducing sensory eye dominance with learning protocol

November 3, 2010

A recent study revealed a novel push-pull training protocol that was designed to reduce sensory eye dominance (SED).

A recent study, published in Current Biology, revealed a novel push-pull training protocol that was designed to reduce sensory eye dominance (SED), which is mainly caused by unbalanced interocular inhibition.

The training involved a cue that stimulated the weak eye (push) while causing interocular inhibition of the strong eye (pull). It was found that the protocol reduced SED and improved stereopsis better than the push only protocol, which only stimulates the weak eye without inhibiting the strong eye.

Additionally, it was indicated in the study that the design of this protocol could be used as a non-invasive treatment of amblyopia.
