Models of the Retina

Pascal Wallisch

The goal of this chapter is to understand the basic structure of the retina and to see how to create simple models of neuronal interactions. In this chapter you will build a simple model describing the interaction between cone cells and horizontal cells of the retina and solve it exactly by taking advantage of the capability of the MATLAB® software to easily manipulate matrices.
