I know, that the retina reduces the spatial information (decorrelation).
Are there also some experimental facts about temporal processing
and information reduction in the retina?
Have the neurons (perhaps the motion-sensitive amacrine cells) some
kind of memory? Or is there some recursive processing in the layers of the
retina? Or play transmission times through nerve fibers a role?
(The literature I read so far about the retina gave no answers)
Has someone measured the answer to a step-function or the temporal
filter function par example, if possible?
(If the retina make no temporal processing, where could this processing
I would be thankful for all hints and literature references.
