Nerve cells provide neighborly aid

The visual cortex of the brain analyzes and processes neuronal signals originating from the retina. When parts of the retina are injured, the corresponding regions in the visual cortex no longer receive any input signals.

Catch a shooting star

New work by Jancke and colleagues, using voltage-sensitive dyes to image neuronal activity in vivo, shows how activity in the early visual cortex can account for our perception of a classic visual illusion.
