Leibovitz, D. P. & West, R. L. (2013) Dendritic+ Processing in an Emergic Network Model of Narrow Slit Viewing. Poster presented to the the 12th International Conference on Cognitive Modeling (ICCM 2013), Ottawa: Carleton University. [doi: 10.13140/RG.2.1.2849.2002] (pdf)
Abstract: Accounting for dendritic+ processing facilitates richer neural encoding schemes that can ultimately lead to simpler networks while improving their neurobiological plausibility. Dendritic+ processing is an example of several modeling tradeoffs: how local complexifications can improve global simplicity, and how functional network circuitry can be traded against representational circuitry. This is demonstrated within a model of narrow slit viewing based on an Emergic Network architecture (Leibovitz & West, 2013).
