Software Description

This is a one-dimensional stand-alone implementation of the Grossberg and Todorović model of a cortical simple cell. The attached zip file contains Matlab code for the model, as well as documentation and a demonstration GUI designed to illustrate the key computational properties. Note that the source for this model is (Grossberg and Todorović, 1988), but only the section pertaining to cortical simple cells is included.
