One simple question.
We know about Lettwin- Maturana article. However, I have heard that both in the behavioral and ( I am not absolutely sure) even in electrophysiological experiments the real good effect was obtained ONLY when the movement of an object was not linear and smooth but sporatic and stochastic. I have observed similar effects in frogs auditory midbrain (and even medullar) neurons ( Bibikov N.G. Addition of noise enhanced neural synchrony to amplitude-modulated sounds in the frog's midbrain. Hear. Research. 2002. v.173 . n1. p.21-28.)
I am very interested to know about some reasonable demonstration and modelling of this effect in the visual system of the frog.
