The functional visual field for detecting letters and its effects on reading direction in Japanese

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a new functional visual field assessment system for young children and people with intellectual disabilities who cannot read sentences fluently. To specify the reliability and the clinical usefulness of this system, two experiments were conducted. The results of the experiments showed the possibility of this assessment system being a useful tool when determining the font size and reading direction suited for maximizing reading performance.
