Visual acuity

Visual acuity (VA) is acuteness or clearness of vision, which is dependent on the sharpness of the retinal focus within the eye and the sensitivity of the interpretative faculty of the brain. Visu...

Tinnitus

Tinnitus causes people to hear constant sounds in one ear, both ears or in their head. Tinnitus is the medical name for the perception of noise in one ear, both ears or in the head. The noise comes ...

Hearing with your eyes—a Western style of speech perception

Which parts of a person's face do you look at when you listen them speak? Lip movements affect the perception of voice information from the ears when listening to someone speak, but native Japanese sp...

Hearing with your eyes -- a Western style of speech perception

(Kumamoto University) Which parts of a person's face do you look at when you listen them speak? Lip movements affect the perception of voice information from the ears when listening to someone speak, ...

How the brain processes faces from sight to recognition

Researchers used highly sophisticated brain imaging tools and computational methods to measure the real-time brain processes that convert the appearance of a face into the recognition of an individual...

Top-level football refs are better at spotting fouls because of enhanced visual perception

Top-level professional football referees have enhanced visual perception, which means that they are better at spotting foul play and issuing the correct disciplinary action than lower-level referees, ...

Researchers identify a new eye movement in human studies.

The purpose of blinks is to keep the eyes hydrated and to protect them. Blinks are rarely noticed by the subject as blink-induced alterations of visual input are blanked out without jeopardizing the p...

Breakthrough opens door to study hallucinations scientifically

A new method for inducing, modelling and measuring visual hallucinations in healthy individuals suggests these complex experiences share a common underlying mechanism with normal visual perception, UN...

Development of Neural Sensitivity to Face Identity Correlates with Perceptual Discriminability.

Face perception is subserved by a series of face-selective regions in the human ventral stream, which undergo prolonged development from childhood to adulthood. However, it is unknown how neural devel...

Faces in Context: Does Face Perception Depend on the Orientation of the Visual Scene?

The mechanisms held responsible for familiar face recognition are thought to be orientation dependent; inverted faces are more difficult to recognize than their upright counterparts. Although this eff...

Neural mechanisms of face perception, their emergence over development, and their breakdown.

Face perception is probably the most developed visual perceptual skill in humans, most likely as a result of its unique evolutionary and social significance. Much recent research has converged to iden...

Disentangling the Representation of Identity from Head View Along the Human Face Processing Pathway.

Neural models of a distributed system for face perception implicate a network of regions in the ventral visual stream for recognition of identity. Here, we report a functional magnetic resonance imagi...

Dissociating Attention Effects from Categorical Perception with ERP Functional Microstates.

When faces appear in our visual environment we naturally attend to them, possibly to the detriment of other visual information. Evidence from behavioural studies suggests that faces capture attention ...
