Describe an integrate-and-fire neuron.
What is lateral inhibition and how does it relate to perception?
Explain how sensory and motor regions can be viewed as hierarchies.
Describe the role that reentrant (two-way) connections play in brain function.
What is Neural Darwinism and how does it work?
List three features of sensory systems.
What slogan best describes Hebbian learning?
Drawing exercises
1. Label the parts in Figure 3.25. You may want to draw the neuron itself as well,
to get a better sense of the typical shape of a pyramidal neurons, the
‘workhorse neuron’ of the cortex.
