This model investigates the development of orientation selectivity and its binocular matching in visual cortex by implementing a neuron that has plastic synapses for its inputs from the left and right eye. The plasticity is taken to be voltage-based with homeostasis (Clopath et al 2010). The neuron is modeled as an adaptive exponential integrate-fire neuron. The uploaded model has been used in Xu, Cang & Riecke (2020) to analyze the impact of ocular dominance and orientation selectivity on the matching process. There it has been found that the matching can proceed by a slow shifting or a sudden switching of the preferred orientation.
