RIKEN Succeeds in Grasping Neuron Activity in Brain's Visual Areas.
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the research group has observed the activities of nerve cells in V1, V2, V3 and V4 areas.
The group has confirmed that the nerve cells in those areas can function in response to environmental changes so that the human can distinguish and visualize objects.
Further, the group has indicated that this discovery will play a role in research on human visual sensitivity.
Details of the research are available in the August 18th issue of the US scientific magazine Neuron.
