As a child, Huh was diagnosed with the condition, which is often called “lazy eye.” he and her colleagues have just found that amblyopia originates in an earlier stage of the visual pathway than was previously thought. Their research, which raises the possibility of new treatment approaches, appears in the Journal of Neuroscience.
