Computational Neuroscience of Vision

This chapter examines the role of the primary visual cortex in visual processing. It describes evidence on the nature of the neuronal responses in the primary visual cortex and the processing streams that lead to the primary visual cortex, and discusses some of their computational properties and the computational processes by which they arise. The chapter suggests that there seem to be partially separated neural pathways within the striate cortex that imply a segregation of the processing channels into three functionally distinct pathways, which includes a stereopsis and motion pathway, a colour pathway, and a form pathway.

Keywords:   primary visual cortex, visual processing, neuronal response, computational process, striate cortex, processing channels, stereopsis, motion pathway, colour pathway, form pathway
