Aphantasia is marked by the inability to generate visual images in the mind's eye. Researchers explore the neurobiological basis for the disorder.
As novel visual patterns become familiar, stark changes occur in the visual cortex. Gamma rhythms give way to low-wave beta waves, and the neural activity switches from PV neurons in favor of inhibitory SOM neurons.
Researchers have identified three areas of the posterior cerebral cortex that bridge the brain's perception and memory systems.
Study identifies a neural pathway associated with error monitoring and attention function in some psychiatric disorders such as ADHD, ASD, and schizophrenia. Researchers say the pathway could be modulated with the help of transcranial magnetic stimulation or transcranial direct current stimulation.
Too many chandelier cells in the binocular region of the brain impair visual depth perception.
Brain regions associated with emotional processing are not functionally connected in a mature way to areas associated with auditory and visual processing in newborns.
Structural and functional coupling in visual areas of the mouse brain can be detected at sub-cellular resolution in vitro.
Study provides new insight into how brain waves control the flow of information through the cortex.
Researchers identify three populations of neurons in layer 6 of the cortex that contribute to alertness.
The inferior temporal cortex is capable of performing tasks, such as distinguishing between real and nonsense words and picking out specific letters from words.
A new study sheds light on why we get tricked by a classic optical illusion. Researchers found brightness estimations occur before visual information reaches the visual cortex, probably originating in the retina.
