A simple artificial neural network model of image reconstruction in sensory maps is presented to explain the difficulty predators experience in targeting prey in large groups (the confusion effect). Networks are trained to reconstruct multiple randomly conformed "retinal" images of prey groups in an internal spatial map of their immediate environment. They are then used to simulate prey targeting by predators on groups of specific conformation. Networks trained with the biologically plausible… CONTINUE READING
