Paper Abstract

This paper presents a generalization of two earlier studies that treat efficient coding and redundancy reduction in the retina. The analysis combines the predictive coding method applied by Srinivasan, Laughlin and Dubs in the spatial domain with the transform coding method applied by Buchsbaum and Gottschalk in the color domain.1-2 The analysis predicts a family of hybrid spatio-chromatic channels paralleling spatio-chromatic receptive fields in the visual system. These channels constitute the visual system strategy to simultaneously and efficiently encode the spatial and chromatic dimensions of color images.
