Interest of a spike to spike model
We are interested in validating the behaviour of our model with:
Dynamic. The activation of MT cells is not constant in time, it suddenly increases when the motion direction is changed. We study the dynamical effects as described in .
Motion recognition. We will show how the spiking output of MT can be successfully used to recognize biological motion starting from real video sequences .
