Influence of adapting speed on speed and contrast coding in the primary visual cortex of the cat

Hietanen, Markus; Crowder, Nathan; Price, Nicholas; Ibbotson, Michael


Adaptation is a ubiquitous property of the visual system. Adaptation often improves the ability to discriminate between stimuli and increases the operating range of the system, but is also associated with a reduced ability to veridically code stimulus attributes. Adaptation to luminance levels, contrast, orientation, direction and spatial frequency has been studied extensively, but knowledge about adaptation to image speed is less well understood. Here we examined how the speed tuning of...[Show more]
