comment Are the center surround receptive fields learnt or inherited?
@caseyr547 That is a little different I think, color blindness, happens at the photoreceptor level. It is the raw data input. Receptive fields are like filters, are information processing elements.

@caseyr547 What I want to know is not specifically related to color vision, I just wonder if the receptive fields of retina ganglion cells are formed before birth and hold fixed, or can be developed afterward. I have read some papers talking about gene regulated wiring specificity in visual pathways. So at least it is partly inherited.
