summary

Figure 1 Basic properties of human OFR. Several properties of motion integration for driving ocular following as summarized from our previous work. (a) A leftward drifting grating elicits a brief acceleration of the eye in the leftward direction. Mean eye velocity profiles illustrate that both response amplitude and latency are affected by the contrast of the sine-wave grating, given by numbers at the right-end of the curves. Quantitative estimates of the sensori-motor transformation are given by measuring the response amplitude (i.e. change in eye position) over a fixed time window, at response onset. Relationships between (b) response latency or (c) initial amplitude and contrast are illustrated for the same grating motion condition. These curves define the contrast response function (CRF) of the sensori-motor transformation and are best fitted by a Naka–Rushton function (reprinted from (Barthélemy et al., 2007)). (d) At fixed contrast, the size of the circular aperture can be varied to probe the spatial summation of OFR. Clearly, response amplitude first linearly grows up with stimulus size before reaching an optimal size, the integration zone. For larger stimulus sizes, response amplitudes are lowered (reprinted from (Barthélemy et al., 2006)). (e) OFR are recorded for center-alone and center–surround stimuli. The contrast of the center stimulus is varied to measure the contrast response function and compute the contrast gain of the sensori-motor transformation at both an early and a late phase during response onset. Open symbols are data obtained for a center-alone stimulus, similar to those illustrated in (c). When adding a flickering surround, ones can see that late (but not early) contrast gain is lowered, as illustrated by a rightward shift of the contrast response function (Barthélemy et al., 2006).


"Personne ne peut dire dans quel but l'homme a été amené en ce monde, ni quelle sera la destinée de l'espèce. Cependant, il y a de grands esprits qui ne vivent pas pour leur bien-être présent mais en vue d'une fin impersonnelle, comme un coureur qui s'épuiserait dans une course de relais, pour un trophée qu'il ignore et qu'un autre remportera."
