13.06.2012 // 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.

New findings support the view that the content of consciousness is...

19.03.2012 // 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.

31.01.2012 // Short-term memory is based on synchronized brain oscillations
A monkey is performing a classical visual memory task: an image was shown to the animal. After a brief interval the animals were either shown the same image again or a different one and had to indicate whether the second image was the same as the first one.

Scientists have now discovered how different brain regions cooperate...
