Modelling Cortical Function Starting with Minimal Connectivity
Towsey, Michael W. & Diederich, Joachim (1999) Modelling Cortical Function Starting with Minimal Connectivity. In 6th International Conference of Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS), 16-20 November, 1999, Perth, Australia.
Neural models of cortical function frequently assume initial profuse connectivity and ignore issues of cortical development. There is increasing interest in cortical models that minimise pre-specification of architecture and instead allow input and learning rules to sculpt connectivity. We describe a model of cortical development that begins with minimal connectivity but arrives at useful functionality through a variety of mechanisms including Hebbian learning, volume learning, synaptic sprouting and structured input. We discuss some of the issues pertinent to the building of neural structure.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
