Abstract

We have used simple learning rules to study how firing maps containing triangular grids-as found in in vivo experiments-can be developed by Hebbian means in realistic robotic simulations. We started from typical non-local postrhinal neuronal responses. We found that anti-Hebbian weight pruning can develop triangular grids under certain conditions. Experimental evidences and the present study suggest that within this model, whitening is a bottom-up process, whereas weight pruning and possibly the non-linear extension of whitening to bottom-up information maximization are guided by top-down influences that reorganize entorhinal responses. We connect our model to the computational model of the entorhinal-hippocampal region of Lo{combining double acute accent}rincz and Buzsáki. In the joined model, the hippocampus is the origin of response reorganization. The joined model may provide insights for memory reorganization guided by hippocampal supervision.
