Image statistics and their processing in insect vision

Olga Dyakova, Karin Nordström
2017 Current Opinion in Insect Science  
Natural scenes may appear random, but are not only constrained in space and time, but also show strong spatial and temporal correlations. Spatial constraints and correlations can be described by quantifying image statistics, which include intuitive measures such as contrast, color and luminance, but also parameters that need some type of transformation of the image. In this review we will discuss some common tools used to quantify spatial and temporal parameters of naturalistic visual input,
