Horizontal Connections

I have still to find a neural model of the competitive selection mechanism that finds the winning node of a SOM. The process has been parallelised many times for parallel SOM implementations based on FPGAs or CUDA (such as Aquila).  There is a lot of work on horizontal/lateral connections in the cortex.  It would be very interesting to study a SOM implementation using such lateral connections to select SOM winners.
