A differential equation is proposed for describing how the brain compromises between a sensation of rotation about a particular axis (derived from the semicircular canals) and a sensation of gravity perpendicular to this axis (derived from the otolith organs). It is shown that this differential equation, with suitably chosen and reasonable values of the(More)
Cowey and Rolls have shown that the magnification factor with which the retina is imaged onto the striate cortex is proportional to visual acuity. Schwartz has used this to derive how visual peripheral acuity in the human varies with distance from the fovea, in good agreement with experiment. The same reasoning applied to the map of the lower half of the(More)
