We study a new biologically motivated model for the Macaque monkey primary visual cortex which presents power-law avalanches after a visual stimulus. The signal propagates through all the layers of the model via avalanches that depend on network structure and synaptic parameter. We identify four different avalanche profiles as a function of the excitatory(More)
Activity in the brain propagates as waves of firing neurons, namely avalanches. These waves' size and duration distributions have been experimentally shown to display a stable power-law profile, long-range correlations and 1/f (b) power spectrum in vivo and in vitro. We study an avalanching biologically motivated model of mammals visual cortex and find an(More)
The cortical processing of visual information begins at the primary visual area of the cerebral cortex (V1). It maps completely the visual field, receiving input from the Lateral Gineculate Nucleus (LGN) and transmitting the output to the secondary visual area (V2). Recently, Andreazza and Pinto have proposed a biologically motivated network of neurons in(More)
