Vision-Driven Development of Auditory Spatial Maps
Active from 1995 - 1997
In the barn owl, the self-organization of the auditory map is strongly influenced by vision. In this study we showed how visual attention could filter the learning in the auditory map, resulting in maps similar to those found in experimental studies. The result provides computational evidence for a particular, simple way in which the different modalities could interact during development.
