According to University of York researchers, the ability to read fine print may be enhanced following exposure to a common visual illusion. The researchers found visual acuity may be enhanced by the expanding motion aftereffect optical illusion.
Using computerized eye trackers, researchers discover at least 50 percent of people can see the movement of their own hand in total darkness.
A new study could help explain why our peripheral vision is so poor.
A new study links a person's visual long term memory to tracking how an object moves.
Retinal ganglion cell survival following a stroke depends on whether the pathway to the primary visual area remains active. Cells connected to inactive areas of the visual cortex suffer atrophy and degenerate, leading to permanent visual impairment.
Researchers report facial recognition varies by where they appear in the visual field, and this variability is reduces through learning familiar faces via social interactions. The study reports repeated social interactions tune visual neurons in the face processing network to enable consistent and rapid rapid recognition of familiar faces.
