Project Prakash UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • In May, a team of Indian and U.S. researchers reported in the journal Science that delay in developing colour vision for children is actually important for overall vision development.

  • Study co-lead Dr. Priti Gupta, a cognitive neuroscientist, said they are able to explain why normal visual development happens the way it does

  • Dr. Priti Gupta leads the research team in India for ‘Project Prakash’, a U.S.-based initiative of IIT Delhi, Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital in New Delhi, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Project Prakash

  • Project Prakash treats and rehabilitates blind children in India. 

  • These children helped the researchers shed light on how the brain learns to see.

  • Normally, a child first understands the world in greyscale. 

  • But the first time the children at Project Prakash experienced normal vision, their eyes had developed enough to see colours as well, so they skipped the greyscale phase

  • Their brain processed black and white images differently as a result
