Sharpening Projections

The human brain can be divided into many areas each performing different computational operations such as vision, reasoning, and motion planning. These areas exchange plenty of information along their connections (so-called projections) whose blueprint is stored in the human genome. However, the size of the human genome limits the precision of the specification of the inter-area connectivity. It remains thus unclear how the human brain can achieve the necessary precision in order to work correctly.

In this talk I will present a biologically plausible model of cortical computation that is capable of "sharpening" the inter-area projections in a variety of network architectures.
