A new study reports neurons in the eye alter on a molecular level when they are exposed to light for prolonged periods of time.
Researchers provide new evidence of brain plasticity. A new study reveals visual cortex neurons sprout new axons and shed some old ones as animals improve at perceptual learning tasks.
People are oblivious to change when color is removed from peripheral vision. Research reports the brain likely fills in for much of our perceptual experience when it comes to seeing the entire picture in color.
According to researchers, our senses of smell and vision make us aware that someone is on the verge of sickness, even before symptoms appear.
Researchers genetically modify individual neurons to become more sensitive to light stimuli.
Study provides new evidence supporting the theory that perceptual limitations are caused by a correlated noise in neural activity.
Working with fruit flies, researchers identify a mechanism which helps explain how neurons which make up the visual system are generated.
