What can engineers learn from insect vision?

Horridge, George Adrian


The mechanisms of insect vision contrast sharply with those of contemporary artificial visual systems and yet present a compelling example of w hat is possible with a stripped-down system of minimal weight.The first step is to describe the components with the aid of behaviour and identification of neurons. Electrophysiology has shown that numerous parallel pathways and superimposed maps, with both local and global mechanisms, are essential for the visual processing. Groups of neurons...[Show more]
