06.09.2010 // The intricate path of nerve signals
Example of a 3D activation map elicited by electric microstimulation (ES) to LGN, a thalamic nucleus that receives visual information from retina and mono-synaptically projects to the primary visual cortex (V1). FMRI signals from V1 show increased neuronal activity (red and yellow colors) whereas later cortical areas are suppressed (blue color).

24.06.2010 // Recognition at first sight
The Thatcher illusion: Local changes in facial features are hardly noticeable when the whole face is inverted (rotated 180°), but strikingly grotesque when the face is upright. In the Diagram two faces of an individual are presented. One picture is normal, while the seems grotesque by an upright presentation, but not if the faces are rotated 180°. Moreover, this illusion disappears if faces of another species are manipulated in the same way (see monkey faces). Graphics: Christoph Dahl / Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics
Max Planck scientists investigate the way faces are recognized
