A new study reveals our brains process weak visual stimuli better in the evenings and mornings than during daylight hours. Researchers say the transition from light to dark has greater influence on visual perception than previously believed.
Researchers discover an upside to the brain mechanisms which can blind us to continuity errors in movies and in the real world.
Neural circuits within the retina are able to generate the information required to predict the movement and path of an object before visual signals leave the eye, researchers report.
Findings using virtual reality could help to improve treatments for people with limited hand strength.
A new study sheds light on how the brain encodes objects with multiple features, a fundamental task for the perceptual system. Researchers suggest neurons that encode a certain feature, such as shape or color, fire in synchrony with neurons that encode other features of the same object.
A new study reports postmenopausal women who had their last child after the age of 35 or used hormonal contraceptives for more than 10 years tend to perform better on cognitive tests.
Have you ever wondered why you can remember things from long ago as if they happened yesterday, yet sometimes can't recall what you ate for dinner last night? A new study suggests it's because how much something means to you actually influences how you see it as well as how vividly you can recall it later.
A newly proposed learning method for those on the autism spectrum accelerates the learning process and can help to improve visual perception.
Study provides an answer to the age-old philosophical question of whether people can see the world objectively. In terms of visual perception, the answer is no.
Researchers find evidence of a specialized mechanism for spatial self-awareness that combines visual cues with body motion.
