Cumulative inhibition in neural networks

Tjøstheim, Trond Arild LU and Balkenius, Christian LU (2019) In Cognitive Processing 20(1). p.87-102
Abstract
We show how a multi-resolution network can model the development of acuity and coarse-to-fine processing in the mammalian visual cortex. The network adapts to input statistics in an unsupervised manner, and learns a coarse-to-fine representation by using cumulative inhibition of nodes within a network layer. We show that a system of such layers can represent input by hierarchically composing larger parts from smaller components. It can also model aspects of top-down processes, such as image regeneration.
