A new study sheds light on how the brain encodes objects with multiple features, a fundamental task for the perceptual system. Researchers suggest neurons that encode a certain feature, such as shape or color, fire in synchrony with neurons that encode other features of the same object.
Roke Manor Research Ltd has developed the world's first threat monitoring system for autonomous vehicles that emulates a mammal's conditioned fear-response mechanism.
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.
Researchers find our peripheral vision effectively allows us to judge what others are doing, even if they are not in our direct line of sight.
A new study provides evidence that the inferior temporal cortex can identify objects.
