For more than 30 years, the visual cortex has been the source of new theories and ideas about how the brain processes information. The visual cortex is easily accessible through a variety of recording and imagining techniques and allows mapping of high level behavior relatively directly to neural mechanisms. Understanding the computations in the visual cortex is therefore an important step toward a general theory of computational brain theory.…mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"An increasingly important technique used by basic scientists to understand brain development and function is theoretical/computational modeling. … Computational Maps in the Visual Cortex provides a good review of this area, though strongly emphasizing the models developed over the past several years by Miikkulainen’s group in the Computer Science department at the University of Texas. … the book will be a useful reference for researchers interested in theoretical approaches for understanding certain properties of the visual cortex." (Geoffrey J. Goodhill, Clinical Experimental Ophthalmology, Issue 34, 2006)

"The hardcover book of 24.2×16.3×3 cm size presents a comprehensive, unified computational theory of the visual cortex as a laterally connected self-organizing map … . All chapters are clearly structured and well written. With more than 170 figures, 47 in full color, the chapters are richly illustrated. … The book is written for computational scientists and neuroscientists working in the field of the visual cortex. The book will be a valuable complement to every scientific library." (R. M. Müri, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 245, 2007)
