Recent visual neuroscience research provides evidence that blind people process the sense of touch faster than people with normal vision. The research also found that each blind person's tactile perception time was nearly equal to their average speed of their finger moving from one Braille character to the next.
UCL neuroscientists have shown that a single neuron, and even a single dendrite, can respond differently to unique sequences of input.
Researchers have developed a camera system that mimics the bee eye. The artificial bee eyes allow the researchers to take images that are believed to be similar to the bee's viewpoint.
Mice without rods and cones were able to use ipRGCs to detect light and possibly form low acuity images.
