Contribution of individual retinal ganglion cell responses to velocity and acceleration encoding.

Abstract

We investigate the capability of turtle retinal ganglion cell (RGC) ensembles to simultaneously encode multiple aspects of visual motion: speed, direction, and acceleration of moving patterns. Bayesian stimulus reconstruction reveals that the instantaneous firing rates of RGCs contain information about all of these stimulus properties. Stimulus velocity is… (More)
