Researchers Ferret-Out How We Perceive Motion, it's all Thanks to Inhibition

Cartoon model of co-tuning (top) and differential tuning (bottom) of excitation (Ge) and inhibition (Gi) for direction. Subthreshold direction selectivity is inherited from synaptic conductances when co-tuned. Differential tuning of excitation and inhibition can preferentially suppress excitation and enhance subthreshold selectivity. With differential tuning, inhibition can be either bidirectional or oppositely tunned for direction relative to excitation. Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience
