Abstract: 
A neural net-based robotic optical circuit that generates a 3-dimensional visual sensation may be obtained by reverse engineering the neurophysiological connectivity (central connections) associated with the modalities of the retinal receptors. The optical circuit that is based on Wheatstone’s stereoscope, is called the Neuronal Correlate of a Modality (NCM)-circuit. The circuit is used to generate a buillding path for a robotic controller that converts two 2-dimensional camera images into a single 3-dimensional sensation of an image that is a high fidelity representation of the objects that gave rise to the two images. In addition the NCM-circuit may be used to solve the neurobiological visual binding and recombination problem and shed light on the neurophysiological function of the LGN and striate cortex.
