Will brain tissue grafts become an important therapy to restore visual function in cerebrally blind patients?

  • Reinhard Werth (a1)
Abstract
Abstract

Grafting embryonic brain tissue into the brain of patients with visual field loss due to cerebral lesions may become a method to restore visual function. This method is not without risk, however, and will only be considered in cases of complete blindness after bilateral occipital lesions, when other, risk-free neuropsychological methods fail.
