Receptive field estimation with localized priors - matlab code
description: Computes the empirical Bayes estimate of a neuron's linear receptive field under the automatic locality determination (ALD) prior. The prior has hyperparameters that control both sparsity (zeroing coefficients outside a local region of space-time) and smoothness (zeroing Fourier coefficients outside a local region of spatio-temporal frequences). Returns MAP estimate after maximizing the marginal likelihood (or evidence) for these hyperparameters. Returns empirical Bayes ridge regression estimate as special case.
