A shunting inhibitory motion detector that can account for the functional characteristics of fly motion-sensitive interneurons

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • The multiplicative inhibitory motion detector (MIMD) has been proposed by the authors (Visual Communications and Image Processing IV, Proceedings of SPIE, 1199, 1229-1240, 1989). The applicability of this motion detector to the activity of motion-sensitive interneurons of the lobula plate, the posterior part of the third visual ganglion in the fly's optic lobe, is investigated. In particular, it is demonstrated that an array of MIMDs can simulate the characteristics of transient and steady-state response and of contrast sensitivity functions for these neurons.
