Single neurons conveying visual information about two separate objects in line of sight do so by alternating signals about one object or the other. However, when the two objects overlap, brain cells detect them as a single entity.
Super recognizers focus less on the eye region and distribute their gaze more evenly than typical viewers, extracting more information from other facial features.
During the embryonic stage, tactile information simultaneously activated the tactile and visual neural pathways. After birth, the pathways separate and reorganize to allow for individual processing of visual and tactile information.
Researchers identified a novel brain network that includes the fronto-parietal networks and fusiform gyrus which helps with the encoding of visual mental imagery.
Researchers argue those with dyslexia are specialized to explore the unknown. This explorative bias has an evolutionary basis that plays a crucial role in human survival.
Study evaluates whether problems in facial processing and recognition in Alzheimer's disease are a result of memory impairment or visual processing deficits.
Children diagnosed with ASD at 24 months had differences in visual processing areas of the brain which were apparent at six months of age, a new study reports.
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.
