Mice are able to perceive the inherent differences between a picture of an object and the actual 3D object itself.
Researchers have identified a brain pathway between the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex and the inferior temporal cortex which enables primates to effortlessly identify objects in their field of vision.
Object and facial recognition abilities are associated with the same brain area but are characterized by different depths of cortical layers, which form at the age each ability was acquired.
Our brains need only perform a few fast statistical calculations to detect the key properties of an unknown object. Findings challenge existing views of how our brains extract and learn about our environment.
Results from a new artificial intelligence study indicate number sense is spontaneously created by the visual system, without prior experience of counting.
Researchers report histamines can help improve memory of objects up-to 25 days longer than normal in mice, as well as improving people's long term memory test scores. The study suggests taking histamines may help alleviate symptoms of memory disorders such as Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Researchers have created a deep learning algorithm that can be tricked by optical illusions, just like humans. The findings shed new light on the human visual system and may help improve artificial vision.
At 6 months of age, babies are capable of memory guided attention, a new study reveals. Young infants are able to learn and remember contextual visual cues to find objects of interest, researchers report. The findings shed new light on both typical and atypical brain development.
