We present a network model of visual map development in layer 4 of primary visual cortex. Our model comprises excitatory and inhibitory spiking neurons. The input to the network consists of correlated spike trains to mimick the activity of neurons in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). An activity-driven Hebbian learning mechanism governs the development of both the network's lateral connectivity and feedforward projections from LGN to cortex. Plasticity of inhibitory synapses has been… CONTINUE READING
