Principles of Image Representation in Visual Cortex

  title={Principles of Image Representation in Visual Cortex},
  author={Bruno A. Olshausen and U. C. Davis One Shields Ave. Davis},
The visual cortex is responsible for most of our conscious perception of the visual world, yet we remain largely ignorant of the principles underlying its function despite progress on many fronts of neuroscience. The principal reason for this is not a lack of data, but rather the absence of a solid theoretical framework for motivating experiments and interpreting findings. The situation may be likened to trying to understand how birds fly without knowledge of the principles of aerodynamics: no… CONTINUE READING
