Dendritic+ Processing in an Emergic Network Model of Narrow Slit Viewing


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, 2012).
