The retina is perhaps one of the most well-studied and well-understood parts of the brain.

Are there any papers that detail full models of the retina that would mimic the firing of the ganglion cells based on the input image? The more quirks it reproduces the better.

What animal are we talking about? The human retina has maybe too many ganglions to model them all. Personally, I don't know about models, but there's lots of results for direct measurements, just google it. E.g. physiology.med.cornell.edu/faculty/nirenberg/lab/research.html or webvision.med.utah.edu/book/… (specifically Movie 2). –  what Jan 14 at 20:21
