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.
