Determining the network parameters of the amphibian vision system

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The objective of this research is to develop vision systems based on visual predators of the amphibian family (toads, frogs and salamanders). The initial phase of the project is modeling a retina (R2, R3, R4) and several neuron layers (T3, and TH-1), and their inhibitory and excitatory synapses using Genesis, a general purpose neural simulator. Since the network parameters are unknown, we are using genetic algorithms to search for a combination of parameters that produces the desired output of correctly identifying prey.
