Movement can help with the processing of visual information

Modern living and working environments are increasingly characterized by the simultaneous execution of locomotion and sensory—mostly visual—processing. Also, many job profiles require the simultaneous processing of visual ...

Using deep learning to predict the vision of glaucoma patients

Research from a team including the Crabb Lab at City, University of London has used "deep learning" (DL), which is a type of artificial intelligence (AI), on thousands of images of the backs of the eyes of glaucoma patients ...

Infants preferentially perceive faces in the upper visual field

It has previously been reported that the human visual system has an asymmetry in the visual field. For example, humans are better at finding faces in the upper visual field than lower visual field (the so-called "upper visual ...

Like social media feeds, our brains take a little while to update

Like our social media feeds, our brains are constantly uploading rich, visual stimuli. But instead of seeing the latest image in real time, we actually see earlier versions because our brain's refresh time is about 15 seconds, ...

Retina 'hardwired' to predict path of moving objects

Neural circuits in the primate retina can generate the information needed to predict the path of a moving object before visual signals even leave the eye, UW Medicine researchers demonstrate in a new paper.

Visual illusion that may help explain consciousness—new study

How much are you conscious of right now? Are you conscious of just the words in the center of your visual field or all the words surrounding it? We tend to assume that our visual consciousness gives us a rich and detailed ...
