How does Retinal Preprocessing Affect the Receptive Field of a Stabilized Hebbian Neuron
Many biological experiments have demonstrated that receptive fields in the visual cortex of cats are dramaticly influenced by the visual environment. In a normal reared animal, the population of sharply tuned neurons increases monotonically, whereas for dark reared animals it initially increases, and then falls back to the initial level (Imbert and Buisseret, 1975). Furthermore the shapes of the receptive fields, in the mature animal, depend on the nature of the environment to which the animals are exposed (Blackmore and Van-Sluythers, 1975).
