    Detecting changes in dynamic and complex acoustic environments

    Yves Boubenec et al.
    Psychophysics experiments and EEG recordings reveal that people's performance in detecting unexpected changes in complex auditory scenes can be modeled as a process of sensory evidence accumulation.

    The number of olfactory stimuli that humans can discriminate is still unknown

    Richard C Gerkin, Jason B Castro
    The recent claim that humans can discriminate more than one trillion odors is shown to be unwarranted.
    1. Neuroscience

    Across-species differences in pitch perception are consistent with differences in cochlear filtering

    Kerry MM Walker et al.
    Humans and other animals have different strategies for extracting the pitch of sounds, potentially driven by the species-specific frequency selectivity of the ear.
    1. Neuroscience

    Segregation of complex acoustic scenes based on temporal coherence

    Sundeep Teki et al.
    Experiments with realistic acoustic stimuli have revealed that humans distinguish salient sounds from background noise by integrating frequency and temporal information.
    1. Neuroscience

    Foggy perception slows us down

    Paolo Pretto et al.
    Virtual reality experiments show that motorists slow down when driving in fog, but they speed up when visibility is reduced equally at all distances.

    Mouse color and wavelength-specific luminance contrast sensitivity are non-uniform across visual space

    Daniel J Denman et al.
    Mice can detect changes in hue independent of luminance, with differing sensitivity to hue and luminance in different parts of visual space.

    Perceptually relevant remapping of human somatotopy in 24 hours

    James Kolasinski et al.
    A combination of 7 tesla fMRI and psychophysics revealed the reorganisation of the human somatosensory cortex and changes in tactile perceptual abilities after just 24 hours of altered hand use.

    Variance predicts salience in central sensory processing

    Ann M Hermundstad et al.
    Psychophysical measures of human sensitivity to visual patterns reveal that the brain preferentially processes those features of stimuli that are more variable in the natural world.
    1. Neuroscience

    Range, routing and kinetics of rod signaling in primate retina

    William N Grimes et al.
    Signals from primate rod photoreceptors do not exhibit the light-level-dependent routing through parallel retinal circuits observed in rodents and often invoked in interpreting psychophysical experiments.
