Study finds part of the category knowledge is already present in the early visual brain areas, revealing how widespread semantic memories are stored throughout the brain.
Altered behaviors associated with LSD may be caused by a reduction in the normal communication between the hippocampus and visual cortex.
While some types of excitatory neurons respond to images and represent them in the visual cortex, the activity of two types of inhibitory interneurons combine in a circuit to reinforce visual stability and reliability.
Neurons in the visual cortex change their response to the same stimuli over time.
Study reveals how decisions based on visual information, which involves a complex stream of data flowing forwards and backward along the visual pathways, are broadcast widely to neurons in the visual system, including those not involved in the decision…
A study of people learning to read braille reveals how white matter reorganizes itself across different brain regions and timeframes to meet the brain’s needs.
Combining machine learning with neuroimaging data, researchers identified a brain region that appears to govern contextual associations.
The structure of SuperAgers’ brains and the connectivity of their neural networks more closely resembles the brains of younger adults, a neuroimaging study reveals.
Study reveals people who experience intense visual imagery during a Ganzflicker test have naturally lower frequency rhythms in the visual cortex, making them more susceptible to pseudo-hallucinations.
Aphantasia is marked by the inability to generate visual images in the mind’s eye. Researchers explore the neurobiological basis for the disorder.
