Motion processing in primates is an intensely studied problem in visual neurosciences and after more than two decades of research, representation of motion in terms of motion energies computed by V1-MT feedforward interactions remains a strong hypothesis. Thus, decoding the motion energies is of natural interest for developing biologically inspired computer vision algorithms for dense optical flow estimation. Here, we address this problem by evaluating four strategies for motion decoding: intersection of constraints, linear decoding through learned weights on MT responses, maximum likelihood and regression with neural network using multi scale-features. We characterize the performances and the current limitations of the different strategies, in terms of recovering dense flow estimation using Middlebury benchmark dataset widely used in computer vision, and we highlight key aspects for future developments.

Abstract

Motion processing in primates is an intensely studied problem in visual neurosciences and after more than two decades of research, representation of motion in terms of motion energies computed by V1-MT feedforward interactions remains a strong hypothesis. Thus, decoding the motion energies is of natural interest for developing biologically inspired computer vision algorithms for dense optical flow estimation. Here, we address this problem by evaluating four strategies for motion decoding: intersection of constraints, linear decoding through learned weights on MT responses, maximum likelihood and regression with neural network using multi scale-features. We characterize the performances and the current limitations of the different strategies, in terms of recovering dense flow estimation using Middlebury benchmark dataset widely used in computer vision, and we highlight key aspects for future developments.
