Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We review how neurons in the principal pathway connecting the retina to the visual cortex represent information about the chromatic and spatial characteristics of the retinal image. Our examination focuses particularly on individual neurons: what are their visual properties, how might these properties arise, what do these properties tell us about visual signal transformations, and how might these properties be expressed in perception? Our discussion is inclined toward studies on old-world monkeys and where possible emphasizes quantitative work that has led to or illuminates models of visual signal processing.
