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 ...

Development of face perception earlier in Japanese children than Western children

Face perception plays an important role in social communication. There have been many studies of face perception in human using non-invasive neuroimaging and electrophysiological methods, but studies ...

Want to distract someone? An emotional face might work

The sudden appearance of a face within our visual field can affect the motor action accompanying a gesture even if the face is totally unrelated to what we are doing and even if we try to ignore it. W...

Brain balances perception and action when caught in an illusion

(University of Oregon) Two wrongs can make a right, at least in the world of visual perception and motor functioning, according to two University of Oregon brain scientists who tracked the eyes of stu...

Hues and cry

A blue dress divided the Internet — and put the science of visual perception in the spotlight.

Faces that distract from actions

The sudden appearance of a face within our visual field can affect the motor action accompanying a gesture even if the face is totally unrelated to what we are doing and even if we try to ignore it. A...

The dissociable effects of punishment and reward on motor learning

Human motor adaptation is often described as an automatic process insensitive to reward- or punishment-based feedback. Contrary to this hypothesis, Galea et al. show through a double dissociation that...

Can you see what I hear? Blind human echolocators use visual areas of the brain

(Canadian Association for Neuroscience) Certain blind individuals have the ability to use echoes from tongue or finger clicks to recognize objects in the distance, and use echolocation as a replacemen...

Probing the functions of contextual modulation by adapting images rather than observers.

Countless visual aftereffects have illustrated how visual sensitivity and perception can be biased by adaptation to the recent temporal context. This contextual modulation has been proposed to serve a...

High temporal frequency adaptation compresses time in the Flash-Lag illusion.

Previous research finds that 20Hz temporal frequency (TF) adaptation causes a compression of perceived visual event duration. We investigate if this temporal compression affects further time-dependent...

Visual Speech Perception in Foveal and Extrafoveal Vision: Further Implications for Divisions in Hemispheric Projections.

When observing a talking face, it has often been argued that visual speech to the left and right of fixation may produce differences in performance due to divided projections to the two cerebral hemis...

Gaze direction affects the magnitude of face identity aftereffects.

The face perception system partly owes its efficiency to adaptive mechanisms that constantly recalibrate face coding to our current diet of faces. Moreover, faces that are better attended produce more...

The chronometry of visual perception: review of occipital TMS masking studies.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) continues to deliver on its promise as a research tool. In this review article we focus on the application of TMS to early visual cortex (V1, V2, V3) in studies...
