Neuroscience: A Mechanism for Rhythmic Sampling in Vision

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

Abstract

Ongoing perception ebbs and flows rhythmically. Understanding the source and scope of this phenomenon is an important step in unraveling the foundations of sensory processing. A new study demonstrates that local neuronal interactions generate rhythmic brain activity and correspond to rhythmic performance patterns on a visual-detection task.
