P cells, which carry both achromatic and chromatic information, are largely responsible for achromatic acuity and contrast sensitivity. The P cell achromatic information must be separated from the chromatic information to be useful. Cortical simple cells are well suited to the extraction of achromatic information by spatial bandpass filtering. Bandpass filtering of Type I P cells by cortical simple cells yields an achromatic signal with a residual chromatic response. The bandpass model makes… CONTINUE READING
