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… Expand

Imprecise correlated activity in self-organizing maps of spiking neurons
TLDR
In this article, integrate-and-fire neural networks are simulated to analyze how changes in the precision of correlated firing among neurons affect self-organization and by keeping these changes within biologically realistic ranges, orientation selectivity maps can emerge and the features of neuronal receptive fields are significantly affected.

Spontaneous symmetry-breaking energy functionsand the emergence of orientation selective cortical cells
The mammalian visual cortex is comprised of “hypercolumns” of orientation selective cells. The developmental process by which cells are generated with receptive fields tuned to a variety ofExpand
Spontaneous symmetry-breaking energy functions and the emergence of orientation selective cortical cells
TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
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.

TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
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
TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
In most respects the above description fits the newborn monkey just as well as the adult, suggesting that area 17 is largely genetically programmed. Expand
Functional architecture of macaque monkey visual cortex
TLDR
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. Expand
Receptive fields, binocular interaction and functional architecture in the cat's visual cortex
TLDR
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.
