Abstract:

Over the last three years, we have carried out a number of projects under this grant, relating to the gating and processing of information in the mammalian visual pathway. Specifically, they have involved 1 a detailed computational investigation of the early visual system of the cat using both analytical as well as numerical tools, 2 a study of the dynamic properties of 2-D networks of coupled oscillatory neurons and 3 the outline of a first neurobiological theory of visual awareness.
