Synapse Clustering Can Drive Simultaneous ON-OFF and Ocular-Dominance Segregation in a Model of Area 17

In the primary visual cortex of monkeys, the development of ocular dominance and orientation selectivity is at least partially driven by neural activity. We propose a modiied Hebb-type learning mechanism, which takes into account non-speciic components of activity-dependent synaptic modiication. It is shown analytically, that ocular dominance and ON-OFF… CONTINUE READING
