Models of direction selectivity

[To see how to upload papers to this page in a way that uses our disk space wisely, click here].

Adelson and Bergen 1985: The motion energy framework, and a great review of previous thinking regarding models of motion selectivity. It also offers a nice description of the Reichardt model.

Barlow and Levick 1965: A beautiful experimental paper motivated by theory; this is the "null inhibition" model of direction selectivity.

Torre and Poggio 1978: Another paper on the null inhibition model, with more detail.
