gain control

An adaptive homeostatic algorithm for the unsupervised learning of visual features

The formation of structure in the visual system, that is, of the connections between cells within neural populations, is by large an unsupervised learning process: the emergence of this architecture is mostly self-organized. In the primary visual …

Dynamical contrast gain control mechanisms in a layer 2/3 model of the primary visual cortex

Dynamical contrast gain control mechanisms in a layer 2/3 model of the primary visual cortex

Computations in a cortical column are characterized by the dynamical, event-based nature of neuronal signals and are structured by the layered and parallel structure of cortical areas. But they are also characterized by their efficiency in terms of …
