How Do We See What Our Eyes Capture in Light?
"The complexity of the neural activity we use to process visual images reflects the intricacy of those images, a team of New York University scientists has found. Their study offers new insights into how our brain extracts information about our natural surroundings from the light captured by our eyes," reports Medical News Today. "'In order to efficiently process the thousands of images we come across on a daily basis, our brains calibrate in ways that are in sync with the characteristics of these images,' explains Robbe Goris, an NYU postdoctoral fellow and the lead author of the study, which appears in the journal Neuron."
