New insights into the circuits of sight: Max Planck Florida study reveals cortical circuits that encode black and white

November 18, 2015 · by IMPRS-BB

While some things may be ‘as simple as black and white’, this has not been the case for the circuits in the brain that make it possible for you to distinguish black from white. The patterns of light and dark… Read more »

This is how a neuron from the hippocampus of a rat looks like. The cell and it's extenive processes are visualised using a fluorescent dye, filled via a glass pipette. The glass pipette, with dye, is shown on the left of the cell body. (c) Photo: AG Heinz Beck/Uni Bonn
