CINV Postdoctoral Fellowship: An integrated biophysical network model of motion direction selectivity in the mammalian retina

Detection of motion and motion direction in the visual mammalian system is observed at processing stages as early as the retinal circuitry (Barlow & Levick 1965). Direction-selective ganglion cells (DSGC) in the retina exhibit higher firing activity in response to visual stimuli moving along a preferred direction, and little to none activity for stimuli moving in the opposite direction (Schachter et al.
