Summary "Computational Maps in the Visual Cortex presents a unified computational approach to understanding the structure, development, and function of the visual cortex. It reviews the current theories of the visual cortex and the biological data on which they are based, and presents a detailed analysis of the laterally connected self-organizing map model and the results obtained to date. Together with the software package Topographica, it therefore servers as a comprehensive foundation for future research in computational neuroscience of the visual cortex."--Jacket
