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.
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.
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.
Researchers have created a deep learning algorithm that can be tricked by optical illusions, just like humans. The findings shed new light on the human visual system and may help improve artificial vision.
A new study unites cognitive science and information theory, reporting our brains are structured to make the best possible decisions given their limited resources.
Researchers report, following a lobectomy, the left hemisphere of the brain compensated for visual tasks in a young boy. The findings, researchers say, provide a detailed characterization of plasticity in the developing brain.
Researchers report developmental prosopagnosia, or face blindness, occurs as the results of neurobiological problems that broadly affect visual recognition.
A patient missing most of her occipital lobes on both sides of the brain is helping researchers shed light on how the brain processes objects in motion.
