Anticipation is the phenomenon in which the response of a system is predictive of the stimulation. The encoding of stochastic light intensity () into spikes is investigated in an experiment with retinas from bullfrogs to understand the mechanism of anticipation of a retina. Partial information decomposition of the mutual information between the spike rates and the joint state is found to be consistent with the encoding by the linear combination of and where is the rate of change of . This spike rate encoding form indicates that a retina is capable of anticipation based on the synergistic information generation between and . Our results suggest that illusions such as the anticipation studied here during retinal perception can originate from the recombination of information extracted in the retinal network.
