(physiology)
That area of the retina within which stimulation with light or a light pattern causes a response in a particular receptor or neuron in the visual pathway.

In practice, attention plays an important role for varying conditions--comparable to a spotlight (a zoom lens)--across a visual receptive field, and the spotlight enhances the efficient detection of events within its sensory stream [8].
This may lead to a more reliable selection regarding available parameters dedicated to the visual receptive field, with the primary goal of estimating a user's interest.
In order to analyze the perceiving mechanism, visual selective attention must be taken into consideration since a visual receptive field is comprised of different visual features that are added together and subsequently used for selection of objects.
The visual receptive field has originally been computed by a machine learning network, called the redial basis function (RBF) to estimate each parameter, which approximated a visual receptive field (e.
In order to compute eye gaze patterns related to a user's interest, a statistical learning algorithm has been incorporated to compute a visual receptive field so as to estimate interest [10][2].
The general setting of the problem of statistical learning is to estimate some function, which depends on an unknown distribution in a (probabilistic) visual receptive field, as previously explained.
We will use this method to determine how connectivity, synaptic and intrinsic properties of different excitatory and inhibitory cell types relate to the emergence of their visual receptive fields (RFs).
