The role of inhibition and adaptation in sensory information processing

Abstract

Some common features of neural transformations along sensory pathways are discussed. The emphasis is on spatial mapping in the visual system, but close parallels exist in temporal visual mapping as well as other sensory systems. The role played by lateral inhibition in sequential transformations is investigated by direct computation and by mathematical analysis.
