The model investigates the impact of learning on functional sensory networks. It uses large-scale recurrent networks of excitatory and inhibitory spiking neurons equipped with synaptic plasticity. It explains enhancement of orientation selectivity and emergence of feature-specific connectivity in visual cortex of rodents during development, as reported in experiments.
