Tilt Aftereffects in the RF-LISSOM Model
Active from 1996 - 2000
If self-organizing processes continue operating on the adult RF-LISSOM structure, tilt aftereffects can be modeled as a result of adapting lateral inhibition and re-normalization. Simulations show that the model can account for both the direct (small angle) and indirect (large angle) effects, while providing a clear computational role for both. This represents an important link between conscious perception and low-level, short-term synaptic plasticity.
