Binocular energy model set for binocular neurons in optic lobe of praying mantis (Rosner et al 2019)

This is a version of the binocular energy model with parameters chosen to reproduce individual cells in praying mantis optic lobe. The receptive fields are very coarsely sampled (6 different horizontal locations only) to match the coarse sampling of the data given very limited recording time.
