... and amplification by downstream neuronal circuits. This amplification has been observed in a population of neurons called small target motion detectors (STMDs), through a mechanism we term predictive gain modulation. As targets drift through the neuron's receptive field, spike frequency builds slowly over time...

..., and directional stimuli across the skin. Receptive fields were small, sometimes restricted to single Eimer's organs. Responses were consistent with a slowly adapting Merkel cell-neurite complex-like receptor class and a dynamically sensitive Pacinian-like rapidly adapting class. A second rapidly adapting class...

...TOSHIO ICHIKAWA The influence of interactions between the antagonistic centre and surround areas of receptive fields on the electrical activities of medulla neurones was examined in the larval swallowtail butterfly Papilio xuthus . Weak signals from the surround had a significant depressive effect...
