Virtual Retina

A biological retina model with contrast gain control for large scale simulations

Keywords: Neurosciences - Simulation - Biology - Health

Scientific Description: Virtual Retina has a variety of biological features implemented such as (i) spatio-temporal linear filter implementing the basic center/surround organization of retinal filtering, (ii) non-linear contrast gain control mechanism providing instantaneous adaptation to the local level of contrast, (iii) spike generation by one or several layers of ganglion cells paving the visual field.

Functional Description: Virtual Retina is a simulation software that allows large-scale simulations of biologically-plausible retinas.
