Abstract:

A summary is given of work done on the following topics Fusion frequency for stimuli of alternating duration. A mathematical model for color constancy. An approach to computers that perceive, learn and reason. In search of the fundamental units of perception an outline. Formation of cell assemblies. Mathematical models for neurone interaction. Model for conditioning and the effect of spaced tracts in learning. A canonical form for nerve nets without circles. A report on a study of visual adaptation is given. Principal results are a second order differential equation for the concentration of rhodopsin, a model that explains how the sensitivity of the rod depends on the concentration, a model that explains the shape of the b-wave of the electroretinogram, and the fitting of some data on illumination thresholds on the basis of these models.
