A new study challenges 75 year old dogma of mammalian vision. Researchers have shows the post rhinal cortex obtains visual data from the superior colliculus and is not dependent upon information from primary visual cortex.
Researchers have identified a new rule of connectivity for neurons in the neocortex, contradicting the popular belief "neurons that fire together, wire together".
Researchers provide new evidence of brain plasticity. A new study reveals visual cortex neurons sprout new axons and shed some old ones as animals improve at perceptual learning tasks.
Where objects appear in a person's visual field can affect the ability to determine what the object is, researchers say.
Study may provide key insights into the visual system and perception.
A new study reveals the majority of V1 neurons project to higher visual areas in a non-random manner.
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.
