Fast, localised motion detection is crucial for an efficient attention mechanism. We show that modelling a network capable of such motion detection can be performed using spiking neural networks simulated on many-core neuromorphic hard-ware. Moreover, highly sensitive neurons arise from the presented network architecture through unsupervised self-organisation. We use a synaptic rewiring rule which has been shown to enable the formation and refinement of neural topographic maps. Our extension… Expand
