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 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 ...

Brilinta (TM) - ticagrelor, AstraZeneca's new heart drug

Brilinta - ticagrelor, AstraZeneca's new heart drug is a blood-thinning medicine designed to prevent dangerous blood clots in patients with serious chest pain or previous heart attacks. It re...

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...

Computations of visual motion in the brain

Botond Roska and his group at the FMI have elucidated how the retina and the visual cortex work together in visual motion perception. They found that cortical cells, which respond preferentially to ba...

Blind people use ‘brain map’ to differentiate between visual categories

Is what you're looking at an object, a face, or a tree? When processing visual input, our brain uses different areas to recognize faces, body parts, scenes, and objects.

You don't see what I see? Visual perception may depend on birthplace and environment

Perhaps we only see what we've learned to see.

How the electrical activity of the brain gives rise to the rich world of perception

The human brain is constantly abuzz with electrical activity as brain cells, called neurons, respond to sensory input and give rise to the world we perceive. Six particular regions of the brain, calle...

The effect of face patch microstimulation on perception of faces and objects

Scientists have long debated the extent to which different brain regions are specialized for specific tasks. Here the authors show that electrical microstimulation of face-selective brain regions in t...

Adaptation reveals that facial expression averaging occurs during rapid serial presentation.

How do we interpret the rapidly changing visual stimuli we encounter? How does our past visual experience shape our perception? Recent work has suggested that our visual system is able to interpret mu...

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...

Dissociation between the neural correlates of conscious face perception and visual attention.

Given the higher chance to recognize attended compared to unattended stimuli, the specific neural correlates of these two processes, attention and awareness, tend to be intermingled in experimental de...

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 ...
