Brian circuits, multi-task – detects and discriminates the exterior world

Just imagine that you are driving on the dark roadway and you view a light from a distance. When the light comes near to you, it gets split into two in the form of two headlights and you feel it nothing but a car and not a two wheeler as this is said by your brain. It was found in a new study that the neural circuits in the brain continuously multitask among detecting and discriminating the sensory input like you have discriminated the headlights from a distance. This is what’s the difference if and the way the electronic circuits work in which a single circuit performs a certain task. It is said by Garrett Stanley, an associate professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University that, “ We showed that circuits in the brain change or adapt from situations when you need to detect something versus when you need to discriminate fine details.”
