Abstract:A neural net-based robotic optical circuit that generates a 3-dimensional visual sensation may be obtained by reverse engineering the neurophysiological connectivity (central connections) associated with the modalities of the retinal receptors. The optical circuit that is based on Wheatstoneâ€™s stereoscope, is called the Neuronal Correlate of a Modality (NCM)-circuit. The circuit is used to generate a buillding path for a robotic controller that converts two 2-dimensional camera images into a single 3-dimensional sensation of an image that is a high fidelity representation of the objects that gave rise to the two images. In addition the NCM-circuit may be used to solve the neurobiological visual binding and recombination problem and shed light on the neurophysiological function of the LGN and striate cortex.
