Objectives
The project investigates the relationship between 'local phase' descriptions of natural images and known properties of cortical neurones. It attempts to understand the statistical constraints of the input (natural images), the computational strategies of the process (to capitalise on redundancy particular to natural images), and the goals of the output (to make implicit structure explicit).
