Hi Mike,

Hope you’re doing well!

As part of my latest project, I need to generate Gabor patches. I began learning about them and they appear to be the plotted representation of Gabor filters. Is that right?

Further, I am seeing a lot of overlap with complex Morlet wavelets. Gabor patches are described as a sine wave convolved with a Gaussian, which is the same definition I learned from you for complex Morlet wavelets. However, Gabor patches look much different than the complex Morlet wavelet line plots I make with time as the x-axis.

Can you provide some intuition on how I should think about Gabor patches?

Since I can already make complex Morlet wavelets by convolving a sine wave with a Gaussian, how can I modify that process to plot Gabor patches?

Thanks very much for your guidance.
