From the retina to action: Dynamics of predictive processing in the visual system

Within the central nervous system, visual areas are essential in transforming the raw luminous signal into a representation which efficiently conveys information about the environment. This process is constrained by the necessity of being robust and …

Introduction

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which serves as a comprehensive but rigorous reference in the area of biologically inspired computer vision modeling. Biological vision shows excellence in terms of performance and robustness. …

Sparse Models for Computer Vision

The representation of images in the brain is known to be sparse. That is, as neural activity is recorded in a visual area, for instance the primary visual cortex of primates, only a few neurons are active at a given time with respect to the whole …

Visual motion processing and human tracking behavior

Dynamical Neural Networks: modeling low-level vision at short latencies

The machinery behind the visual perception of motion and the subsequent sensori-motor transformation, such as in ocular following response (OFR), is confronted to uncertainties which are efficiently resolved in the primate's visual system. We may …
