The mission of the Atlanta VAMC Rehabilitation R&D Center of Excellence for Visual and Neurocognitive Rehabilitation (CVNR) is to foster the health and well-being of veterans through uniquely synergistic research impacting visual and/or neurocognitive function.
A Word from Our Director:
The Center for Visual and Neurocognitive Rehabilitation (CVNR) is focused on enhancing veterans' health by conducting research on the rehabilitation of visual and related neurological impairments. Our research spans the gamut from the basic science of repair mechanisms through the development of creative rehabilitative interventions to improve function and social re-integration.
Our investigators and staff come from a variety of backgrounds and collaborate to synergistically develop novel approaches and foster the translation of scientific discoveries into clinically relevant treatments. Most of our investigators also hold academic appointments, at Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology or Georgia State University.
