Researchers have identified a flexible mechanism of visual information representation that alters in correlation to visual contrasts.
Humans use the primary visual cortex to process sounds in the dark. This not only occurs in those with sight but also those who were born blind.
Researchers report their new artificial neural network can identify objects as well as the primate brain can.
Researchers have identified cortical circuits that encode light and dark light.
Study provides new evidence supporting the theory that perceptual limitations are caused by a correlated noise in neural activity.
Researchers have identified a new rule of connectivity for neurons in the neocortex, contradicting the popular belief "neurons that fire together, wire together".
The neuropeptide somatostatin improves visual processing and cognitive behaviors by reducing excitatory inputs to parvalbumin-positive interneurons in mice.
A new paper hypothesizes that a particular type of interneuron may influence responses in a context dependent manner.
