Researchers have identified a link between visual processing problems and an increased risk of developing a mental health disorder. The study reports the risk for mental illness increases when the visual cortex has difficulty communicating with networks associated with focus and introspection.
A new study reveals how patterns of neural activity in the retrosplenial cortex assist with navigation and spatial memory.
Study offers new clues about how the brain processes near-death scares and other traumatic autobiographical memories.
Researchers induce people to perceive colors that were't really there and provide evidence that the V1 and V2 visual areas are capable of associative learning.
Researchers report they have identified neurons in the visual cortex that selectively respond to an intermediate color, not just primary colors.
Researchers have identified neurons in the visual cortex that enable the detection of moving objects as we move along.
New findings from Max Plank Institute researchers challenges conventional belief about the role of the thalamus in learning. Researchers report the thalamus plays a far more active role in visual processing in the context of learning than previously thought.
