When it comes to processing information about motion, neurons in the ventral intraparietal area of the brain are more flexible in switching between reference frames. The findings could be used to develop neural prosthetics designed for motion control.
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.
Spontaneously generated patterns of activity by local neural networks in the developing visual cortex provide the basis for long range connections that are established throughout brain activity over the course of cortical development, researchers report.

Results from a new artificial intelligence study indicate number sense is spontaneously created by the visual system, without prior experience of counting.
Researchers report developmental prosopagnosia, or face blindness, occurs as the results of neurobiological problems that broadly affect visual recognition.
