People with hyperphantasia, the ability to visualize vividly, have stronger connections between their visual brain network and decision-making networks. By contrast, those with aphantasia, an inability to visualize, have weaker connections between the brain regions.
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.
Researchers have identified three areas of the posterior cerebral cortex that bridge the brain's perception and memory systems.
A new neuroimaging study reveals brain patterns that differentiate between men and women are less pronounced in non-heterosexual people. The differences occurred primarily in sensory processing areas of the brain, in particular areas associated with visual processing. Researchers say the brain differences could be linked to a genetic predisposition for same-sex sexual behaviors. The study reveals a neurobiological basis for same-sex attractions.
A new artificial neural network based on the human brain sheds light on how we process moving images.
Study identifies a neural pathway associated with error monitoring and attention function in some psychiatric disorders such as ADHD, ASD, and schizophrenia. Researchers say the pathway could be modulated with the help of transcranial magnetic stimulation or transcranial direct current stimulation.
An area of the superior temporal sulcus is critical for visual processing and making decisions about visual information.
Too many chandelier cells in the binocular region of the brain impair visual depth perception.
Researchers were able to ascertain the colors people were seeing by looking at their brain activity. The study reveals we have unique brain activity associated with specific colors.
