Did you know that human vision is more complex than previously thought? fMRI studies at Duke University showed that the current picture of human vision, known as feature detection, is incomplete. Based on the new picture of human vision, labeled predictive coding, brain neurons predict and edit what you see before you see it. The brain predicts what it will see and edits its predictions in a top-down mechanism, performing "error correction" on the fly.
