Perception of social interactions unfolds through pupil dilation. The findings shed light on the visual system’s role in sensitivity to social interactions.
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…
While the visual cortex stores individual images in the brain, the hippocampus plays a significant role in the ability to recognize a sequence of images.
Jumping spiders can distinguish between living and non-living objects based upon their movement, a new study reports.
A new study reveals how the visual system stabilizes and what happens when we shift our vision by moving our eyes.
Face pareidolia, a phenomenon where the brain is tricked into seeing human faces in inanimate objects, may occur as a result of the brain processing the perceived facial expression in the same sequential way it perceives a human face.
A newly designed optical illusion is helping researchers better understand visual processing and perception. The illusion creates a subjective reality in what we see, highlighting the constructive nature of perception.
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.
Study reveals very young infants can perceive objects that older infants, children, and adults can not see due to a phenomenon called visual backward masking.
A new study sheds light on visual development and learning in children. Researchers found cortical recycling in the ventral temporal cortex reflects adjustments to changing visual demands throughout childhood.
