We propose a natural image representation, the neural response, motivated by the neuroscience of the visual cortex. The inner product defined by the neural response leads to a similarity measure between functions which we call the derived kernel. Based on a hierarchical architecture, we give a recursive definition of the neural response and associated derived kernel. The derived kernel can be used in a variety of application domains such as classification of images, strings of text and genomics data.
