Reichardt Model for Motion Detection in the Fly Visual System (Tuthill et al, 2011)

This simulation implements a correlation-type model for visual motion detection, as originally described by Hassenstein and Reichardt (1956), and analyzes the response of the model to standard and reverse-phi motion stimuli. Details are provided in: Tuthill JC, et al. (2011)
