Motion is a change in position over time B. How is motion computed? Motion detection How would you build a motion detector based on changes in the position of an object over time? Start with two adjacent receptors. Each registers change in position Incorporate a delay. Accounts for change in time B. How is motion computed? Motion detection Constructing a neural circuit for the detection of rightward motion B. How is motion computed? Motion detection How would this network treat apparent motion?

The “aperture” problem Aperture: An opening that allows only a partial view of an object Aperture problem: The fact that when a moving object is viewed through an aperture (or a receptive field), the direction of motion of a local feature or part of an object may be ambiguous. B. How is motion computed? The Aperture Problem Aperture problem - observation of small portion of larger stimulus leads to misleading information about direction of movement Activity of a single V1 cell does not provide accurate information about direction of movement. ( demo ) B. How is motion computed? The Aperture Problem Movement within aperture is perpendicular to the edge B. How is motion computed? The Aperture Problem

5/22/2013 5 Aperture problem Given that motion within any single aperture (or receptive field) is ambiguous, how might the visual system correctly perceive the overall motion of objects? Motion information from several local apertures (or receptive fields) can be combined to determine the global motion of the object. There are several directions of motion within each aperture that are compatible with the stimulation the receptor is receiving.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
