A new study addresses the nature and origin of neural signals involved in solving perceptual tasks.
Researchers propose a new theory of what happens in the brain when we experience familiar seeming visual stimuli. The theory, dubbed sensory referenced suppression, suggests the brain understands different levels of activation expected for sensory input and corrects for it, leaving behind the signal for familiarity.
A new study challenges 75 year old dogma of mammalian vision. Researchers have shows the post rhinal cortex obtains visual data from the superior colliculus and is not dependent upon information from primary visual cortex.
Researchers report a new EEG system is capable of capturing more information from the visual cortex than previous versions of the same system.
A new study reports our brains may reward us for looking at pretty faces.
A new study provides evidence that the inferior temporal cortex can identify objects.
Researchers genetically modify individual neurons to become more sensitive to light stimuli.
CT1 cells connect around 1400 areas in the fly brain. Each cell area works like a separate neuron, allowing CT1 to access information from the fly's eye and support local motion detection.
Working with fruit flies, researchers identify a mechanism which helps explain how neurons which make up the visual system are generated.
