Neuroscientists identify how the brain works to select what we (want to) see

If you are looking for a particular object — say a yellow pencil — on a cluttered desk, how does your brain work to visually locate it? For the first time, neuroscientists have identified how different neural regions communicate to determine what to visually pay attention to and what to ignore. This finding is a major discovery for visual cognition and will guide future research into visual and attention deficit disorders.

A research team led by UC Irvine neuroscientists has identified how the brain processes and stores emotional experiences as long-term memories. The research, performed on rats, could help MIT neuroscientists working with researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the Shanghai Mental Health Center have now identified a pattern of brain activity correlated with development of schizophrenia, which Visual Attention: CMU ) Image of parietal cortex: three colors demonstrate one--one mapping from first place visual information es from Tags: visual, attention, neuroscientists, identify, Neuroscientists identify a surprising low-tech A good night’s sleep es down a fy place rest your head.
