Simple Cortical Cell Visual Analysis


  • Simple Cortical Cell Visual Analysis
    • A simple cortical cell is illustrated below, it codes for vertical lines
    • The stimulus is shown in white
    • Note that the cell's activity is highest when the stimulus "fits" into the receptive field of the cell
    • Remember, how the brain processes complex visual information is still a mystery
    • Also, the processing of visual information occupies the majority of the brain's activity in humans
