Cortexica was founded in 2009, after six years of research in the Bioengineering labs of Imperial College London, where researchers effectively modeled how human neurons react to visual stimulus, accurately mimicking the Primary Visual Cortex.

The elements of vision we measured are determined by inputs from specific sets of thalamic neurons into the primary visual cortex.
They took a closer look at the BOLD signal from the primary visual cortex by experiments with participants in a two-by-two factorial design - the visual target "visible" versus "invisible" and attention "to" versus "away" from the target.
As is well known, the experience of human vision resides in our visual cortex; people with lesions in their primary visual cortex report that they cannot see.
The research team discovered that the initial neural response of the primary visual cortex (V1) and primary auditory cortex (A1), the first cortical areas of the brain receiving information about the stimuli, is amplified by attention.
Scientists at Durham have confirmed colour contrast is first detected by part of the brain called primary visual cortex.
In the study, published in the journal Current Biology, functional magnetic resonance imaging scans found that the subliminal image registered in the primary visual cortex of the brain.
Researchers have long regarded this brain area, the primary visual cortex, as relatively resistant to change.
