New paper by Ke Jia et al is available in BioRxiv in which we show that 7T brain imaging reveals adaptive fine-scale circuits in the human brain. Learning and experience are critical for translating ambiguous sensory information from our environments to perceptual decisions. Yet, evidence on how training molds the adult...
