About this Research Topic
The goal of this RESEARCH TOPIC is to provide a survey of the state of the art on non-primate models of visual functions. We are particularly interested in studies aimed at understanding those middle- to higher-level visual functions that are more commonly studied in primates, such as (but not limited to) orientation discrimination, motion detection, depth perception, and pattern/object recognition. We welcome original research articles encompassing the full spectrum of neuroscience methodological approaches (such as behavior/psychophysics, imaging, electrophysiology, anatomy/histology, genetics), as well as theoretical/computational studies, reviews, and opinion pieces. Studies performed on any non-primate animal model (such as rodents, avian, fish, insects, etc) are welcome.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
