This article presents a self-organizing neural network model for the simultaneous and cooperative development of topographic receptive fields and lateral interactions in cortical maps. Both afferent and lateral connections adapt by the same Hebbian mechanism in a purely local and unsupervised learning process. Afferent input weights of each neuron self organize into hill-shaped profiles, receptive fields organize topographically across the network, and unique lateral interaction profiles… CONTINUE READING
