Review for Project Prakash Foundation, Cambridge, MA, USA
It has been a year and a half since I first heard about Project Prakash. When I watched the TED talk by Professor Pawan Sinha, the founder of the project, I was tremendously impressed by the idea of how humanitarian outreach and science go together. The motivation and effects of the project electrified my mind because I am a postdoc in neuroscience and have been interested in volunteering activities. The scope of the project is not only to treat the blind children but also to educate them so that they will positively contribute to the society. The scientific findings from the eye surgery have significantly contributed to understanding neuroplasticity of human vision, and they are a strong driving force to generalize the post-surgery outcomes so that more people who suffer from various neurological disorders will be treated.
