    Conserved visual capacity of rats under red light

    Nader Nikbakht, Mathew E Diamond
    Psychometric measures reveal that, contrary to common assumption, rats have good visual form discrimination capacity under red and even far-red illumination.

    Population rate-coding predicts correctly that human sound localization depends on sound intensity

    Antje Ihlefeld et al.
    Softer sound appears closer to midline than louder sound, conflicting with a labelled-line representation of auditory space and supporting the idea that humans use rate coding when calculating sound directionality.

    Perception in autism does not adhere to Weber’s law

    Bat-Sheva Hadad, Sivan Schwartz
    Perception in autism is sensitive to absolute rather than to relative metrics of the environment, encoding changes in the environment without calibrating the changes relative to reference stimulation.

    A circuit mechanism for decision-making biases and NMDA receptor hypofunction

    Sean Edward Cavanagh et al.
    Ketamine, an NMDA receptor antagonist and experimental model for schizophrenia, produces decision-making deficits in monkeys, which are predicted by a lowering of cortical excitation-inhibition balance in a spiking circuit model.

    Processing of motion boundary orientation in macaque V2

    Heng Ma et al.
    Area V2 in macaque monkeys contributes to the perception of the outlines of moving objects and achieves this through a local computation.

    Decoupling sensory from decisional choice biases in perceptual decision making

    Daniel Linares et al.
    Perceptual decision making, even in simple scenarios, is affected by sensory and decisional choice biases.

    Optogenetically induced low-frequency correlations impair perception

    Anirvan Nandy et al.
    Low-frequency correlations among neurons in monkey visual area V4 impair the animal's ability to perform an attention-demanding task, suggesting a causal role of these fluctuations in perception.

    Perceptual decisions are biased by the cost to act

    Nobuhiro Hagura et al.
    When choosing between stimuli, the effort required to act on the resulting decision influences the processing of the stimuli themselves.

    Increased influence of prior choices on perceptual decisions in autism

    Helen Feigin et al.
    Perceptual decisions are influenced by preceding choices to a larger extent in individuals with autism spectrum disorder, such that they demonstrate a greater consistency bias.

    Cortical magnification in human visual cortex parallels task performance around the visual field

    Noah C Benson et al.
    In humans, the surface area of early visual cortex across polar angle is distributed in a pattern that correlates strongly with radial asymmetries in behavioral performance on visual tasks.
