The posterior parietal cortex, an area of the brain implicated in spatial awareness, plays a critical role in visual decision making.
Trying to retain too much information in our working memory can lead to a breakdown in communication between areas of the brain responsible for maintaining it, researchers say.
Researchers report synchrony of brain waves within three regions of the brain can 'break down' when visual working memory load becomes too extensive to handle.
According to new research, multiple cortical regions work together to process sensorimotor information, despite having predetermined specialized roles.
The lateral intraparietal area (LIP), a region of the brain known to play a vital role in spatial and visual processing also has a parallel function, categorizing visual information, a new study suggests.
