Original Source: Visual adaptation and face perception.

The appearance of faces can be strongly affected by the characteristics of faces viewed previously. These perceptual after-effects reflect processes of sensory adaptation that are found throughout the visual system, but which have been considered only relatively recently in the context of higher level perceptual judgements. In this review, we explore the consequences of adaptation for human face perception, and the implications of adaptation for understanding the neural-coding schemes underlying the visual...

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...

Cleft Palate and Cleft Lip

Cleft means 'split' or 'separation', and in Cleft Palate and Lip, the palate and lip are split respectively. This occurs as a congenital abnormality because during development in the...

Serial dependence in visual perception

Visual input is often noisy and discontinuous, even though the physical environment is generally stable. The authors show that the visual system trades off change sensitivity to capitalize on physical...

Time flies - when you are looking at an unattractive face

The common expression ’time flies when you’re having fun‘ suggests that people’s perception of duration is moderated by the impact of their emotions and the activities they are performing; in...

Brain processes visual info not shared with conscious perception

As children, many of us encountered optical illusions, such as Rubin's Vase, which could be perceived as either two faces or a vase. Using this concept, a new study published in the journal Psychologi...

Young adults 'recall memories in high definition'

It is common knowledge that as we get older, our memory capacity can decrease. But new research suggests that both older and younger people have the same memory capacity - only, younger people are abl...

New therapy helps to improve audio and visual perception in stroke patients

(Saarland University) Stroke is one of the most common neurological disorders worldwide. Many stroke survivors are left with serious health problems. Some patients, for example, find themselves unable...

Intermittent vision of the action can improve brain's visual perception, improve hockey players' performance

Professional hockey players who trained with special eyewear that only allowed them to see action intermittently showed significant improvement in practice drills, according to a Duke University study...

Activity more than location affects perception of earthquakes

A new study by Italian researchers suggests that a person's activity at the time of the quake influences their perception of shaking more than their location. Whether a person is at rest or walking pl...

Interactions between concentric form-from-structure and face perception revealed by visual masking but not adaptation.

Findings from diverse subfields of vision research suggest a potential link between high-level aspects of face perception and concentric form-from-structure perception. To explore this relationship, t...

Imagining sex and adapting to it: Different aftereffects after perceiving versus imagining faces.

A prolonged exposure (i.e., perceptual adaptation) to a male or a female face can produce changes (i.e., aftereffects) in the subsequent gender attribution of a neutral or average face, so that it app...

Afterimage induced neural activity during emotional face perception.

The N170 response differs when positive versus negative facial expressions are viewed. This neural response could be associated with the perception of emotions, or some feature of the stimulus. We use...

Adaptation effects to attractiveness of face photographs and art portraits are domain-specific.

We studied the neural coding of facial attractiveness by investigating effects of adaptation to attractive and unattractive human faces on the perceived attractiveness of veridical human face pictures...

Noise and adaptation in multistable perception: Noise drives when to switch, adaptation determines percept choice.

We study the dynamics of perceptual switching in ambiguous visual scenes that admit more than two interpretations/percepts to gain insight into the dynamics of perceptual multistability and its underl...
