Researchers reports that, when it comes to images like 'the dress, our differences in color perception may be due to assumptions about how the stimuli was illuminated.
Prediction errors play a role in the context of dynamic perceptual events that take place within fractions of a second. Findings support the hypothesis that visual perception occurs as a result of a decision process.
Crashes in visual processing occur when neurons processing one image are tasked with processing another too quickly. This results in either one or both images being unable to reach our conscious awareness.
Researchers use nanotechnology to create a light sensitive film that could form the basis for a prosthetic retina.
Smell influences how children evaluate strange faces, a new study reports.
Gene therapy that targets retinal ganglion cells with light-sensitive cone opsins helps restore vision in mice. Researchers report a potential human treatment could be available within three years.
