Motion Tuning to Drifting Gratings and Water Flow

Vaughn Spurrier
In murine primary visual cortex, simple cells extract edge orientation from visual inputs, while complex cells extract motion direction. These properties are classically measured using synthetic psychophysical visual stimuli, typically drifting gratings. Natural movies contain complicated distributions of edge orientation and motion statistics, vastly differing from the edge and motion content of drifting gratings. It remains unclear the extent to which single neuron properties measured under synthetic stimuli extend to responses to natural movies. In...
