Conscious perception is a matter of global neural networks

Neurons in the lateral prefrontal cortex represent the content of consciousness. The red trace depicts neural activity (neuronal discharges) in the lateral prefrontal cortex when a stimulus is consciously perceived for 1 second while the green trace depicts neural activity when the same stimulus is suppressed from awareness. Graphic: Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics

New findings support the view that the content of consciousness is not localised in a unique cortical area[more]

Seeing movement: Why the world in our head stays still when we move our eyes

When visually tracking a moving object, we perceive the world as stable, despite its movement across the retina. This picture illustrates the motion-blur on the retina when an observer either tracks a moving object or keeps the eyes still on the background.

Scientists from Tübingen discovered new functions of brain regions that are responsible for seeing movement[more]
