The thickness of the optical layer is 50µm C Four iso-orientation maps generated through moving gratings employing four different orientations (0°, 45°, 90°, 135°) D The resolution of the original picture is compared with the resolution, that is used in the computational model. One pixel in the original image corresponds to an extension of 17µm x 17µm. The digitized image uses pixel size of 230µm x 200µm. From estimations about neuronal densities, one pixel (17x17 µm) contains about 0.7 neurons (Beaulieu C., Colonnier M. 1985). The present model contains roughly 110 neurons for each resolved location.
