MIT neuroscientists find the brain can identify images seen for as little as 13 milliseconds.

A team of neuroscientists from MIT has found that the human brain can process entire images that the eye sees for as little as 13 milliseconds — the first evidence of such rapid processing speed. That speed is far faster than the 100 milliseconds suggested by previous studies. The new study appears in the journal Attention, Perception, and Psychophysics.
