Experimental Investigations of a Model of the Human Visual System


The basic principles of a multichannel model of the visual system of a human that functions as an operator performing surveillance on images formed by optoelectronic devices are described. A technique for experimental studying the model of the human visual system is proposed. The results of experimental studies aimed refining the parameters of the model of the visual system are presented. A satisfactory agreement between the calculated and experimental results indicates that the refined model of the human visual system is adequate.
