An oscillating computational model combined with a predictive internal linguistic model can track naturally timed speech in which pseudo-rhythmicity is related to the predictability of words within their sentence context.
The location of impact sounds, common stimuli whose detection is crucial for survival, is encoded by a precise interaction between excitation and inhibition rather than coincidence detection of excitatory events.
An innovative inter-subject stimulus-locked brain activation approach uncovers marked topological differences in a brain network of higher-order visual regions in individuals with a congenital impairment in face recognition compared with controls.
Both bottom-up and top-down processing are involved in the occipital-temporal face network, with the top-down modulation more extensively engaged when available information is sparse in the face images.
Following anterior temporal lobe neurodegeneration, defective semantic representations are compensated via enhanced perceptual processing and associated with a dysregulation of the semantic control system.
Neurons in the fruit fly olfactory system respond most strongly to the sudden appearance of an odor, and to odors that are changing rapidly in strength, but are relatively insensitive to the absolute levels of an odor.
