Video of Moving Discs Reconstructed from Rat Retinal Neuron Signals

Using machine-learning techniques, a research team has reconstructed a short movie of small, randomly moving discs from signals produced by rat retinal neurons. Vicente Botella-Soler of the Institute of Science and Technology Austria and colleagues present this work in PLOS Computational Biology. The accuracy of the reconstruction is higher for methods that can ignore spontaneous neural signals. (Mehr in: Pressemitteilungen – idw – Informationsdienst Wissenschaft)
