Neuroinformatics Research in Vision

  • Shiro Usui
Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 19)


The NRV project (Neuroinformatics Research in Vision) is the first project in Japan started in 1999 under the Science and Technology Agency of Japan, aimed at building the foundation of neuroinformatics research. Because of the wealth of data on the visual system, the NRV project will use vision research to promote experimental, theoretical and technical research as a pilot study on neuroinformatics.
