Brain processes images in 13 milliseconds:
MIT scientists have discovered that the human brain is capable of processing images of about 10 times faster than previous studies have shown.
In the new study , participants were shown a series of six to 12 photos of concept , such as ” picnic ” and the experiment was carried out several times with the images shown in varying amounts of time ” smiling couple . ” – First during 80 milliseconds , then 3, 27 and 13 . The researchers found that subjects were able to remember more specific photos when photos are shown in increments of 13 milliseconds.
The results , published in the journal Attention, Perception and Psychophysics , scientists explain the process called ” feedforward process ” by which information flows in one direction from the eye to the visual processing centers in the brain . The study shows evidence that feedforward processing is enough for the brain to recognize the concepts , the researchers said that while previous studies suggested that more complex processes are needed to identify the image.
