Alright, it's high time I actually answer this question. Beatrice de Gelder and crew published two papers that examined this with fMRI (here) and EEG (here). fMRI study In the fMRI study, they presented participants with emotional faces against threatening and neutral backgrounds, with various controls (a triangle, a scrambled background). The ...

I think it is safe to say that we simply don't understand nearly enough (anything?) about the neural basis of qualia / experience to be able to give a satisfying answer to this question. That said, at least in the case of human experience, most neuroscientists would agree that if there is any centralized locus of experience it is the brain, and although the ...

The learning rule you describe (i.e. the change of synaptic weights from source neuron to target neuron depending on the temporal difference between source and target activity) is often referred to as 'classical' or 'standard' STDP (spike-timing dependent plasticity) and is focused on connections between excitatory cells. However, this simple form of ...

I have found the human information processing model (Wickens) to be a good starting point at understanding the high-level processing functions that take place.

I think this question is not getting answered because it suggests a misunderstanding or lack of understanding about all the forces leading up to your specific question about long term memory. For instance, you imply that we see images in detail to begin with—or that we are able to 'store' a detailed image in short term memory... and that detail simply does ...

It actually has nothing to do with having an experimental and control group. A double dissociation refers to documenting two distinct patterns of impairment in two different groups or individuals, proving that two functions are neurologically distinct. For example, someone with hippocampal damage will have trouble forming declarative memories (memories you ...
