    • Correlated firing among major ganglion cell types in primate retina. 

      Field, Greg; Greschner, Martin; Shlens, Jonathon; Bakolitsa, Constantina; Gauthier, Jeffrey L; Jepson, Lauren H; Sher, Alexander; ... (9 authors) (The Journal of physiology, 2011-01)
      Retinal ganglion cells exhibit substantial correlated firing: a tendency to fire nearly synchronously at rates different from those expected by chance. These correlations suggest that network interactions significantly shape ...
    • Efficient coding of spatial information in the primate retina. 

      Field, Greg; Doi, Eizaburo; Gauthier, Jeffrey L; Shlens, Jonathon; Sher, Alexander; Greschner, Martin; Machado, Timothy A; ... (14 authors) (The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience, 2012-11)
      Sensory neurons have been hypothesized to efficiently encode signals from the natural environment subject to resource constraints. The predictions of this efficient coding hypothesis regarding the spatial filtering properties ...
    • Functional connectivity in the retina at the resolution of photoreceptors. 

      Field, Greg; Gauthier, Jeffrey L; Sher, Alexander; Greschner, Martin; Machado, Timothy A; Jepson, Lauren H; Shlens, Jonathon; ... (13 authors) (Nature, 2010-10)
      To understand a neural circuit requires knowledge of its connectivity. Here we report measurements of functional connectivity between the input and ouput layers of the macaque retina at single-cell resolution and the implications ...
