Target Motion Discrimination with Model Retina and Cortex
Model of a turtle's visual cortex has been developed and successfully used to discriminate di fferent input stimuli to different locations of its lateral geniculate nucleus. Turtle's retina model also shown the capability of discriminating motion targets verifying the biological experimental results. However, the two models are studied separately and driven by different input stimuli in the past. Here, in this thesis we will be combining the two models and let the output of the retinal model to drive the visual cortex model. We will be paying attention to the model parameters such as the connection strength between the two previous models and the white noise levels during this experiment.
