Orientation-selective cells--cells that are selectively responsive to bars and edges at particular orientations--are a salient feature of the architecture of mammalian visual cortex. In the previous paper of this series, I showed that such cells emerge spontaneously during the development of a simple multilayered network having local but initially random… CONTINUE READING
