The Invariance Hypothesis Implies Domain-Specific Regions in Visual Cortex
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), bioRxiv, 2015-04-26)
Is visual cortex made up of general-purpose information processing machinery, or does it consist of a collection of specialized modules? If prior knowledge, acquired from learning a set of objects is only transferable to ...
Representation Learning in Sensory Cortex: a theory
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), 2014-11-14)
We review and apply a computational theory of the feedforward path of the ventral stream in visual cortex based on the hypothesis that its main function is the encoding of invariant representations of images. A key ...
View-tolerant face recognition and Hebbian learning imply mirror-symmetric neural tuning to head orientation
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2016-06-03)
The primate brain contains a hierarchy of visual areas, dubbed the ventral stream, which rapidly computes object representations that are both specific for object identity and relatively robust against identity-preserving ...
