Automated Matrix-style learning demonstrated

A US-Japanese team of researchers have demonstrated a system that uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) feedback to attune a person’s visual cortex to match the brain patterns needed to perform various high-performance tasks with little or no conscious effort. The researchers, from Boston University (BU) and ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories (Kyoto), acknowledge their system’s […]

The Visual Cortex Goes Digital

Cognitive scientist Mark Changizi, from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, is developing pictorial representations of digital circuits which he says can turn our eyes and visual cortex into a powerful, programmable digital computer. Writing in the journal Perception, Changizi explains that harnessing the power of our visual system requires visually representing a computer program in such […]
