A new study uncovers how the amygdala reacts and triggers memory-making activity when the eyes come to rest on a face versus another object or image.
Researchers reveal how the brain creates an illusion of visual stability.
New research indicates the existence of an unconscious iconic memory store that supports predictions made by the global workspace theory of consciousness. It also shows that visual masking does not erase memory traces of masked stimuli but only limits conscious access.
Too many chandelier cells in the binocular region of the brain impair visual depth perception.
A visual test may be a new tool in the diagnosis of autism. Individuals on the autism spectrum are slower to dampen neural activity in response to visual stimuli in the brain. Using EEG data collected from the visual region, researchers could predict with 87% accuracy whether or not a person had ASD.
