Individual neurons integrate information through biophysical mechanisms, possibly resulting in an action potential. This is commonly interpreted as a decision-making process. Networks of neurons thereby become networks of decision makers, with the ``decision,’’ or output, of one neuron naturally becoming an input to another. Such cooperating decision makers formally define a mathematical game. I show how the columnar organization of visual cortex can be modelled in particular as a polymatrix game, with payoff terms based on the synaptic value of long-range horizontal connections.
