Abstract

Summary The smooth phase of the rabbit's optokinetic reaction was simulated with analog electronic elements. The model is based upon (1) known input-output relationships of the optokinetic system in closed loop and open loop conditions, and (2) input-output properties of two classes of retinal direction-selective motion detectors in the rabbit. Apart from velocity detectors the model contains a transport delay, a leaking integrator with a long time constant and a pure integrator with automatic reset. The input-output relationships of the optokinetic system for steady rotations, sinusoidal, stepwise and other movements are faithfully simulated by the model, both for normal and open loop conditions.
