Hello great Brain Community

Today i'd like to know more about the underlying coding Principles of
the retina. I have read several papers and understood the basic
principles but  where im stuck is "Dynamic predictive coding by the
retina"* How can the receptive field of the ganglion cell dynamically
adapt to  maximise response to novel stimuli. On slightly different
topic i'd also like to know, where the melanopsin containing ganglion
cells project to and what they do.


*Dynamic predictive Coding by the retina; Toshihiko Hosoya  2005
nature vol 436

P.S.: What are biphasic spatio temporal receptive fields?
