Spatial frequency channels are systems sensitive to a limited range of spatial frequencies. In the human visual system these are considered to be a population of cells with similar tuning characteristics specifically sensitive to a restricted range of the contrast sensitivity function <44> envelope. See bandpass filter <16>.
