We review our work on computational modeling of the mammalian visual cortex. In particular, we explain the network mechanism of how simple and complex cells arise in a large scale neuronal network model of primary visual cortex. The simple cells are so-called because they respond approximately linearly to visual stimulus, whereas the complex cells exhibit nonlinear response to visual stimulation. Our model reproduces qualitatively the experimentally observed distributions of simple and complex cells.
