Neil, > It doesn't matter what kind of fancy oscillators you have, my > point was how you arrange them in relation to the signal. So neurons generating spikes are "fancy". I guess then models would have to be "fancy" too. > In fact Deliang, the information about the various kinds of eye > movements required to avoid image adaptation was taken directly > ... The vision community is a better place to voice your complaints, as I said earlier. > Certainly, Gray and Singer have!

If you have problem about a specific point in a specific paper, please communicate directly with the concerned people instead of broadcasting it to the whole list. Also papers already published are in the literature, and there you can make extensive arguments and people can make up their minds by reading them (in a whole, not distorted). No point to repeat the arguments in the list. Please be bandwidth-conscious. > DeLiang, I would be extremely upset if you gave up on "neural > oscillators" - it would ruin my fun. Sorry Neil, whether you have fun or not does not play much a role in my work. Cheers, DeLiang
