    The large-scale organization of shape processing in the ventral and dorsal pathways

    Erez Freud et al.
    Functional neuroimaging reveals sensitivity to shape information and correlation between brain activation and perceptual behaviour in both dorsal and ventral visual pathways, thereby challenging the strict binary distinctions between the two pathways.

    The perception and misperception of optical defocus, shading, and shape

    Scott WJ Mooney et al.
    The human visual system uses sharp edges to distinguish a smooth, shaded surface from a surface blurred by optical defocus.
    1. Neuroscience

    Specialized contributions of mid-tier stages of dorsal and ventral pathways to stereoscopic processing in macaque

    Toshihide W Yoshioka et al.
    Visual area MT signals binocular disparity quickly and robustly, whereas area V4 or its upstream area transforms the nature of the signals to derive a more sophisticated depth representation.

    S-cone photoreceptors in the primate retina are functionally distinct from L and M cones

    Jacob Baudin et al.
    Heterogeneity in perceptual sensitivity of human cone-mediated vision across wavelength originates in the cone photoreceptors, where S cones exhibit distinct functional properties in comparison to L and M cones.

    Sensory dynamics of visual hallucinations in the normal population

    Joel Pearson et al.
    A new method for inducing, measuring and modelling visual hallucinations in healthy people reveals that hallucinations share common underlying mechanisms with normal sensory perception.

    Conditioned respiratory threat in the subdivisions of the human periaqueductal gray

    Olivia K Faull et al.
    High-resolution imaging shows that the different columns of the human periaqueductal gray play differential roles in the response to a respiratory threat.

    A simple retinal mechanism contributes to perceptual interactions between rod- and cone-mediated responses in primates

    William N Grimes et al.
    A combination of physiological and perceptual experiments show that the responses of rod photoreceptors inhibit those of cones more than vice versa, and reveal both the site of the retinal interaction and the underlying mechanism.

    Education and Outreach: March Mammal Madness and the power of narrative in science outreach

    Katie Hinde et al.
    Hypothetical battles between animals can be used to interest the general public in biology.
    1. Neuroscience

    A theory of working memory without consciousness or sustained activity

    Darinka Trübutschek et al.
    Visual information can be maintained in non-conscious working memory for several seconds via short-term changes in synaptic weights.
  1. Research Culture: A survey of early-career researchers in Australia

    Katherine Christian et al.
    Job insecurity is putting stress on early-career researchers in Australia, compromising their career development and potentially reducing the quality of research.
