Abstract

In this paper development of a directionally selective structure in cat striate cortex is used as a paradigm for exploring issues of biologically plausible and computationally interesting learning algorithms. A compartmental model of a "canonical microcircuit" is used to represent functional units of the cortex. Initially, the thalamus projects in a random fashion to a pair of cortical microcircuits. Through the use of a sliding threshold model of LTP and LTD, these projections develop biologically plausible, directionally selective responses to randomly moving visual stimuli Possible implications of the learning algorithm on self-organization in the developing cortex are discussed.
