According to researchers, the brain uses similar calculations to measure the speed and direction of objects in motion whether they are visually perceived or touched.
According to researchers, when shifting attention from one spot to another, the brain blinks. They report these blinks are momentary unconscious gaps in visual perception.
Researchers report they have identified neurons in the visual cortex that selectively respond to an intermediate color, not just primary colors.
When learning a new task, brain activities alter over time as mice transition to an expert from a novice. The changes are reflected in neural networks and neural activity. As the animal's knowledge grows, neural networks become more focused.
Study provides new evidence supporting the theory that perceptual limitations are caused by a correlated noise in neural activity.
