A cell model for the detection of local image motion on the magnocellular pathway of the visual cortex

Abstract

We propose that five types of cell on the magnocellular pathway of the visual cortex constitute a function hierarchy for detecting local image motion. Lateral geniculate nucleus cells and two simple cell types analyse one-dimensional velocities perpendicular to oriented components within a moving stimulus. Combining these velocities, a group of complex… (More)
