Reconstruction of the spatio-temporal receptive fields of visual neurons with filtered back projection

This project provides procedures to reconstruct both the spatio and temporal receptive fields of visual neurons that have been stimulated with a series of flashed bars.

A complete description of this method along with examples of its implementation has been published in a scientific paper in J Physiol (2014) doi:10.1113/jphysiol.2014.276642 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25172952).
Please cite this paper when publishing data using this method.

Also see http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1113/JP272384/full for a good example of how this method can also reveal the time course of synaptic inputs across different regions of an amacrine cell's receptive field
