Furthermore, it is aimed to explore the plasticity of the visual cortex after vision improvement in terms of the functional changes of both some specific subareas within the visual cortex and higher cognitive networks that extend beyond the visual cortex.
Neuromagnetic correlates of perceived contrast in primary visual cortex.
Role of layer 6 of V2 visual cortex in object-recognition memory.
Using this method, the team hopes to begin generating a wiring diagram of a brain area with a particular function, such as the visual cortex.
In the discussion of brain processing of vision the bottom-up aspects are often overemphasized: light strikes the retina, impulses travel up the optic nerve to the visual cortex and higher.
The 2-week-long treatment also increased the regional cerebral blood flow (CBF) especially in the thalamus, basal ganglia and visual cortex of the nonsymptomatic hemisphere.
As a result, it was found that neural response elicited by the stimuli at the attended location is amplified in the primary visual cortex (V1) and primary auditory cortex (A1) as they first arrive there.
The magazine you're now holding, or the computer screen you're looking at, sends constantly changing inputs to your eye and optic nerve, but the subsequent pattern of neurons firing in your visual cortex displays an underlying stability.
This can be made through the activation of a population of neurons or represented in a hypercolumn in the visual cortex, but being one or the other it has a specific pattern that allows that object to be recognised as unique.
In addition, specialized neural populations exist in different areas of the visual cortex both within and between hemispheres that are more responsive to some features than others (for example, color, motion, size, shape, volume, brightness, and binocular disparity, among others).
