Contrast and Temporal Frequency-Related Adaptation in the Prectal Nucleus of the Optic Tract

Ibbotson, Michael


In mammals, many cells in the retino-geniculate-cortical pathway adapt during stimulation with high contrast gratings. In the visual cortex, adaptation to high contrast images reduces sensitivity at low contrasts while only moderately affecting sensitivity at high contrasts, thus generating rightward shifts in the contrast response functions (contrast gain control). Similarly, motion adaptation at particular temporal frequencies (TFs) alters the temporal tuning properties of cortical cells. For...[Show more]
