A simple algorithm based on bandpass-filtering of white noise images provides good quality computer reconstruction of the cat and monkey ocular dominance and orientation column patterns. A small number of parameters control the frequency, orientation, “branchedness”, and “regularity” of the column patterns. An oriented (anisotropic) bandpass filter followed by a threshold operation models the macaque ocular dominance column pattern and cat orientation column system. An unoriented (isotropic… CONTINUE READING
