Paper Abstract

In this paper, the ability of the retina to detect motion in the retinal peripheral visual field is emulated. The process of emulation utilizes a special receptive field defined in the spatial and temporal domains. The simulation studies on this emulated peripheral visual field show that it is possible to acquire certain robust abilities in artificial systems which are inherent in their corresponding biological processes. Abilities such as noise suppression were evident in the emulated motion detection system presented in this paper.
