Abstract: As experimental research reveals the biological mechanisms behind the processing done by the retina, complete models of the retina become more and more possible. This paper presents a temporal model of primate photoreceptors inspired by the mechanisms discovered in other species. It implements light adaptation based on pigment bleaching and biochemical reactions. The simulation provides similar results to experiments made in impulse, contrast and sensitivity response curves of primate cones and rods.
