In this paper,based on Kohonen's SOFM model, a new learning algorithm is given, in which the lateral feedback effects are strengthened. Experements have shown that this algorithm speeds up the processing of producing a topographically ordered feature map and improves the clustering effect. Keywords: Neural Networks; Self-Organization; Lateral Feedback; Differential Competitive Learning; Phoneme Map
