Current deep learning models are able to create images strongly enough to activate specific neurons in the visual cortex. However, researchers say more accurate artificial neural network models should be developed to help produce more accurate control.
Transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) helps boost visual learning in patients with chronic cortical blindness, leading to a recovery in motion processing within 10 days of exposure. The effects of the tRNS treatment appear to last for at least six months.
Using computer models, researchers discover melanopsin pigment in the eye is more sensitive to light than rhodopsin pigment.
Neuroimaging study sheds new light on how we perceive colors. Activity in higher visual cortex areas matched the colors test subjects saw.
Aphantasia is marked by the inability to generate visual images in the mind's eye. Researchers explore the neurobiological basis for the disorder.
