Lateral Interactions in the Cortex: Structure and Function
by

Publisher: UTCS Neural Networks Research Group
ISBN/ASIN: 0964706008

Description:
In the last few years, several new results on the structure, development, and functional role of lateral connectivity in the cortex have emerged. Many of the results and their interpretations are still controversial, and computational investigations can serve a pivotal role in establishing this new model. This book brings together eleven such investigations, each from a slightly different perspective and level aiming to explain what function the lateral interactions could play in the development and information processing in the cortex.
