Study sheds light on how various types of pulsations in the brain change while a person sleeps.
Researchers have identified hundreds of proteins that are consistently transported throughout the healthy brain via small membrane-enclosed sacs. The findings reveal a new form of communication between brain cells.
Researchers have identified a flexible mechanism of visual information representation that alters in correlation to visual contrasts.
The fusiform face area, an area of the visual cortex responsible for facial processing, develops much earlier than previously believed.
Study finds part of the category knowledge is already present in the early visual brain areas, revealing how widespread semantic memories are stored throughout the brain.
Altered behaviors associated with LSD may be caused by a reduction in the normal communication between the hippocampus and visual cortex.
While some types of excitatory neurons respond to images and represent them in the visual cortex, the activity of two types of inhibitory interneurons combine in a circuit to reinforce visual stability and reliability.
Study reveals how decisions based on visual information, which involves a complex stream of data flowing forwards and backward along the visual pathways, are broadcast widely to neurons in the visual system, including those not involved in the decision-making process.
A study of people learning to read braille reveals how white matter reorganizes itself across different brain regions and timeframes to meet the brain's needs.
