The processing of visual data in area 17 of the mammalian cortex is mainly performed by cells with receptive fields which are tuned to different orientations of input stimuli. The mechanisms underlying the emergence of receptive field properties of orientation selective cells are not well understood up to now. Recently, some models for the prenatal development of the receptive fields of orientation selective simple cells have been proposed, which emerge in neural networks trained by Hebb type…

Learning Intuitive Physics and One-Shot Imitation Using State-Action-Prediction Self-Organizing Maps

A simple but effective unsupervised model which learns to represent the dynamical physical properties of its environment by intrinsically motivated exploration and performs inference on this representation to reach goals.

The data obtained indicate that the neuronal network is able to transform the converging input signals into the mosaic equivalent to their entire combination and thereby to transmit the result of generalization of the input signals of the network to the innervated brain structures.

Spontaneous symmetry-breaking energy functionsand the emergence of orientation selective cortical cells

A model for the production of orientation selective cells that requires no external stimuli and a minimum of input parameters is presented, which could result in the development of cell groups with correlated preferred orientations that resemble the hypercolumns seen in the visual cortex.

This paper is the first of three that address the origin and organization of feature-analyzing cells in simple systems governed by biologically plausible development rules, and introduces the theory of "modular self-adaptive networks," of which this system is an example, and explicitly demonstrates the emergence of a layer of spatial-opponent cells.

The most surprising finding is that an isotropic connection scheme, circular inhibition, in which a cell inhibits all of its postsynaptic target cells at a distance of approximately 500 microns, enhances orientation tuning and leads to a significant directional bias.

It is shown that orientation-selective cells, similar to the "simple" cortical cells of Hubel and Wiesel, emerge in a "modular self-adaptive network" containing several layers of cells with parallel feedforward connections whose strengths develop according to a Hebb-type correlation-rewarding rule.

Orientation bias of cat retinal ganglion cells

The results presented here redirect attention to the retinal level since they reveal a previously unsuspected systematic relation between orientation bias of ganglion cells and their location relative to the area centralis.

Quantitative studies of single-cell properties in monkey striate cortex. I. Spatiotemporal organization of receptive fields.

The properties of single cells in striate cortex of the rhesus monkey, representing the visual field 2 degrees -5 degrees from the fovea, were examined quantitatively with stationary and moving stimuli and showed differences between S-type and CX-type cells.

In most respects the above description fits the newborn monkey just as well as the adult, suggesting that area 17 is largely genetically programmed.

Functional architecture of macaque monkey visual cortex

By four independent anatomical methods it has been shown that these columns have an ocular dominance column all cells respond preferentially to the same eye, in that cells with common physiological properties are grouped together in vertically organized systems of columns.

Receptive fields, binocular interaction and functional architecture in the cat's visual cortex

This method is used to examine receptive fields of a more complex type and to make additional observations on binocular interaction and this approach is necessary in order to understand the behaviour of individual cells, but it fails to deal with the problem of the relationship of one cell to its neighbours.
