A general mechanism for tuning: Gain control circuits and synapses underlie tuning of cortical neurons
Author(s)Kouh, Minjoon; Poggio, Tomaso
Tuning to an optimal stimulus is a widespread property of neurons in cortex. We propose that such tuning is a consequence of normalization or gain control circuits. We also present a biologically plausible neural circuitry of tuning.
