A model is presented which accounts for many characteristic response properties used to classify anuran ganglion cell types while being consistent with data concerning interneurons. In the model color is ignored and input stimuli are assumed to be only black and white at high contrast. We show that accurate ganglion cell responses are obtained even with(More)
Computational neuroscience is a subfield of neuroscience that develops models to integrate complex experimental data in order to understand brain function. To constrain and test computational models, researchers need access to a wide variety of experimental data. Much of those data are not readily accessible because neuroscientists fall into separate(More)
Teeters and Arbib presented a model of the anuran retina which qualitatively accounts for the characteristic response properties used to distinguish ganglion cell type in anurans. In this paper we test the model's ability to reproduce quantitatively tabulated data on the dependency on stimulus shape and size, with a new implementation of the model in the(More)
A wide range of experimental data characterizing properties of individual salamander retinal cells and synaptic interactions are integrated to form a quantitative computational model of visual function in the salamander retina. The model is used to show how specific interactions between neurons and between networks of neurons can lead-to the integrated(More)
— The purpose of this document is to specify the basic data types required for storing electrophysiology and optical imaging data to facilitate computer-based neuroscience studies and data sharing. These requirements are being developed within a working group of the Electrophysiology Task Force in the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility(More)
In salamander retina, the response of On-Off ganglion cells to a central flash is reduced by movement in the receptive field surround. Through computer simulation of a 2-D model which takes into account their anatomical and physiological properties, we show that interactions between four neuron types (two bipolar and two amacrine) may be responsible for the(More)
