The Enas–Virtual Retina platform
In 2016 we merged Enas and Virtual Retina to produce the Enas platform https://enas.inria.fr. The initial version of Virtual retina has been extended to include lateral connections in the Inner Plexiform Layer. We can then simulate the response of the retina to visual stimuli (movies), including the effect of lateral connectivity, analyse the collective spike response to this stimulus using Gibbs distributions, and reproduce a similar raster using learning methods shaping the connectivity in the Inner Plexiform Layer.
