Director Field Model of the Primary Visual Cortex for Contour Detection

4 Oct 2013Vijay SinghMartin TchernookovRebecca ButterfieldIlya Nemenman

We aim to build the simplest possible model capable of detecting long, noisy contours in a cluttered visual scene. For this, we model the neural dynamics in the primate primary visual cortex in terms of a continuous director field that describes the average rate and the average orientational preference of active neurons at a particular point in the cortex...
