Biological neurons that show a locally tuned response to
input may arise from the network topology of
interneurons in the system. By considering such a subnetwork,
a learning algorithm is developed for the online
learning of the centre, width and shape of locally
tuned response functions. The response function for
each input is trained independently, resulting in a very
good fit for the presented data. Two example networks
utilising these neurons were considered. The first was a
completely supervised network while the second utilised
a Kohonen-like training scheme for the hidden layer. The
adaptive response function neurons (ARFNs) were able
to achieve excellent class separation while maintaining
good generalisation with relatively few neurons.
