The input vector is fed through the net to every unit. Associated to every unit is an activation vector with the same dimension as the input vector. The units determine the distance between the input vector and the activation vector and the one with the smallest distance is the maximally excited unit, the activation centre. It could be proved that there exists an activation centre at any time. Figure 4. A feature-map is a two-dimensional array of units Ui,k which are fully interconnected. The input signal vector Xn feeds to each unit.
