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.
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.
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.
A new study provides insights into how our brain extracts information about our natural surroundings from the light captured by our eyes.
Study may provide key insights into the visual system and perception.
