Lateral Interactions in the Cortex: Structure and Function
by J. Sirosh, R. Miikkulainen, Y. Choe
Publisher: UTCS Neural Networks Research Group 1996
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.

Reflecting changes in the field during the past five years, the second edition of the book describes state-of-the-art techniques and their applications for the growing field of functional imaging in the live brain using optical imaging techniques.
The human brain has the same general structure as the brains of other mammals, but has a more developed cortex than any other. Despite being protected by the thick bones of the skull, the human brain is susceptible to damage and disease.

To detect and process sound, the ear employs a highly nonlinear, adaptive, real-time spectral analyzer: the cochlea. Sound excites vibration of the eardrum and the three miniscule bones of the middle ear, the last of which acts as a piston ...
