Parallel visual pathways originate at the first synapse in the retina, where cones make connections with cone bipolar cells that in turn contact ganglion cells. There are more ganglion cell types than bipolar types, suggesting that there must be divergence from bipolar to ganglion cells. Here we analyze the contacts between an OFF bipolar type (DB3a) and(More)
Three well characterized pathways in primate vision (midget-parvocellular, parasol-magnocellular, bistratified-koniocellular) have been traced from the first synapse in the retina, through the visual thalamus (lateral geniculate nucleus, LGN), to the visual cortex. Here we identify a pathway from the first synapse in the retina to koniocellular layer K1 in(More)
Inspiration is an important aspect of human creativity and one that creative systems are only recently implementing. In this research, we describe and implement a transmedia creative inspiration model for generative art systems. Our implementation of this model is Visual Information Vases (VIV), an artificially intelligent ceramicist that creates(More)
