...attend to important ones?" said study senior author David Freedman, PhD, associate professorprofessor of neurobiology at the University of Chicago. "We've zeroed in on an area of the brain that appears central to this process. It does this in a very flexible way, changing moment by moment depending on what is being looked for."
The study, "Dynamic Integration of Task-Relevant Visual Features in Posterior Parietal Cortex" was supported by the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation, with additional support from a McKnight Scholar award, the Alfred...
"OCT is well validated in adults. It is a ubiquitous tool for understanding optic nerve damage and is starting to be used as a proxy for disease progression. It is being used in the pediatric population but our data begs the question that we may need different parameters in children."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Finally, we review recent comparative fMRI experiments and speculate about the future of nonhuman primate imaging."
