Paper Abstract

The wavelet transform dilates and translates a selected fundamental wavelet. Selective sampling of the continuous wavelet transform identifies discrete components used as a basis for signal projections. Similarly, some properties of early vision may be descried in terms of dilations and translations of fundamental waveforms. Examples include the optical point spread function, spectral absorption curves of photoreceptors, receptive fields of photoreceptors. Receptive fields of post-receptor cells, and eye movements. These vision features are described with respect to the dilation and translation of candidate waveforms. Spatial, temporal, and chromatic filtering in the vision pathways are also describe with respect to similarities with wavelet subband analysis.
