Lateral Interactions in the Cortex: Structure and Function
by J. Sirosh, R. Miikkulainen, Y. Choe
Publisher: UTCS Neural Networks Research Group 1996
In the last few years, several new results on the structure, development, and functional role of lateral connectivity in the cortex have emerged. Many of the results and their interpretations are still controversial, and computational investigations can serve a pivotal role in establishing this new model. This book brings together eleven such investigations, each from a slightly different perspective and level aiming to explain what function the lateral interactions could play in the development and information processing in the cortex.

In the past decade, few issues at the intersection of medicine and sports have had as high a profile or have generated as much public interest as sports-related concussions. Concussion is the most common type of traumatic brain injury.

Hubel, a Nobel Prize winner, begins by explaining the structure and function of the retina and visual areas of the brain, then proceeds to more complex phenomena, such as how the brain and eyes together produce stereoscopic and color vision.
