Retinal basic structures generate a complex neural code at the level of the ganglion cells, which send to the brain information about contrast, luminosity, color, direction of movement and orientation.
Two studies published in Nature Neuroscience show now that this code is not qualitatively stable as previously thought and changes with luminance conditions. The implications of this finding are profound. Here you find the summary of these studies.
