Mathematicians and neuroscientists have created the first anatomically accurate model that explains how vision is possible.
Researchers found that elongating certain brain signals in rats improved their memory. The work revealed a new property to look out for in the hunt for “biomarkers” of learning.
New experimental results simultaneously advance and challenge the theory that the brain’s network of neurons balances on the knife-edge between two phases.
Your expectations shape and quicken your perceptions. A new model that explains how that happens also suggests it’s time to update theories about sensory perception and decision making.
Two new studies show that the brain’s navigation system changes how it represents physical space to reflect personal experience.
