Visual perception in a snapshot
To study visual perception in its sub-second scale of time continues to be timely: we have more unsolved puzzles than bits of a firm undisputable knowledge about how our perceptions are created in a snapshot of time. ...
An investigation of cognitive dysmetria in developmental dyslexia
(Pion Ltd, 2006)
An alternative to theories positing visual or phonological deficits, the 'cognitive dysmetria' hypothesis proposes the aetiology of dyslexia to take the form of a general functional coordination deficit or cognitive ...
Some facilitatory effects of lorazepam on dynamic visual binding
Rationale: The benzodiazepine lorazepam enhances the potential for inhibitory (GABAA) synapses in the cortex to stabilize postsynaptic, excitatory activity by synchronizing discharge rates at frequencies of around 40 Hz. ...
Electrophysiological correlates of similarity-based interference during detection of visual forms
(MIT Press, 2006-06)
Illusory figure completion demonstrates the ability of the visual system to integrate information across gaps. Mechanisms that underlie figural emergence support the interpolation of contours and the filling-in of form ...
Flicker-induced color and form: Interdependencies and relation to stimulation frequency and phase
Our understanding of human visual perception generally rests on the assumption that conscious visual states represent the interaction of spatial structures in the environment and our nervous system. This assumption is ...
A moment to reflect upon perceptual synchrony
(MIT Press, 2006-10)
How does neuronal activity bring about the interpretation of visual space in terms of objects or complex perceptual events? If they group, simple visual features can bring about the integration of spikes from neurons ...
