Botond Roska and his team at the FMI have investigated how visual features, extracted in the eye, are combined in the thalamus, the second stage of visual processing in the brain.

Rather, synaptic connections between different types of retinal cells and individual thalamic cells permit the integration of different visual features - in some cases from both eyes. Read more
