Neuronal Feedback Could Change What We "See"

Study from Carnegie Mellon Neuroscientists Could Explain Mechanism Behind Optical Illusions
March 29, 2016

The brain reacting to feedback between neurons in different parts of the visual system could explain the mechanism behind optical illusions, according to a study published in The Journal of Neuroscience by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University.

Understanding this feedback system could provide new insight into the visual system's neuronal circuitry and could have further implications for understanding how the brain interprets and understands sensory stimuli.
