Wired for sound: How the brain senses visual illusions

...ry flash was also marked by a rapid enhancement of processing in the auditory cortex of the brain. By observing the auditory boost, the researchers could predict when subjects would report seeing the visual illusion of a second flash. "Our results provide evidence that perception of the illusory second fla...

Brain structure changes years before memory loss begins

...eimer's disease had less gray matter in key memory processing areas of their brains even at the beginning of the study when they were cognitively normal. "We found that changes in brain structure are present in clinically normal people an average of four years before MCI diagnosis," said study author Charles ...
