Performance Comparison of Motion Encoders: Hassenstein–Reichardt and Two-Detector Models
Several motion-detection models have been proposed based on insect visual system studies. We specifically examine two models, the Hassenstein-Reichardt (HR) model and the two-detector (2D) model, before selecting model the more efficient motion encoders. We analytically obtained the mean and variance of stationary responses of the HR and the 2D models to white noise to evaluate performances of the two models. Especially when analyzing the 2D model, we calculated higher-order cumulants of a rectified Gaussian. Results show that the 2D model gives almost equal performance to that of the HR model in a biologically reasonable case.
