Researchers report synchrony of brain waves within three regions of the brain can 'break down' when visual working memory load becomes too extensive to handle.
Video games high in action content help players to become quicker learners, researchers report.
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.
In visual working memory, the brain immediately transfers the memory of object shifts by re-encoding the memory among neurons in the opposite brain hemisphere.
A new study reveals newly hatched ducklings can quickly acquire the concepts of 'same' and 'different'.
Brain activity in the fusiform face area on the right side of the brain showed no difference in those with face blindness compared to those without the condition. However, researchers found those with prosopagnosia had reduced activity in a corresponding area on the left side of the brain.
P300 brain waves may serve as markers to identify places, objects and other details a person recognizes in daily life, a new study reports.
While people with aphantasia lack visual imagery ability, they have intact spatial memory. Findings suggest mental imagery recall and spatial memory may be stored differently in the brain.
Study reveals both similarities and differences in how the left and right sides of the brain process semantic memory.
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.
