Abstract

We present a model that can perform ICA-like learning by simple, local, biologically plausible rules. By combining synaptic learning with homeostatic regulation of neuron properties and adaptive lateral inhibition, the neural network can robustly learn Gabor-like receptive fields from natural images. With spatially localized inhibitory connections, a topographic map can be achieved. Additionally, the network can solve the Földiák bars problem, a classical nonlinear ICA task.
