Retina is the first stage for visual information processing in vertebrates. However, the retinal function is constrained by a number of factors such as the anatomic limitation, the metabolic limitation, and the noise in the neural circuitry. Our research is mainly focused to investigate the efficiency of information processing of the retinal neurons under such limitations and the related spatial and temporal patterns of the neural activities.
