Edgar Erwin, Klaus Obermayer, and Klaus Schulten. A comparison of models of visual cortical map formation. In Frank H. Eeckman and James M. Bower, editors, Computation and Neural Systems, chapter 60, pp. 395-402. Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1993.

ERWI93 Several classes of models of visual cortical map characterization and development are compared. Characteristics and predictions of the models are compared to one another and to cortical maps observed in animals. Several models are found to predict incorrect map structure. Certain observed patterns of visual maps imply constraints on the processes which could be involved in their morphogenesis.
