Activity in the deep SC has been described as different regions competing for access to motor resources.

Rowland et al. present four SC models.

The first SC model presented by Rowland et al. is a single-neuron model in which sensory and cortical input is simply summed and passed through a sigmoid squashing function.

The sigmoid squashing function used in Rowland et al.'s first model leads to inverse effectiveness: The sum of weak inputs generally falls into the supra-linear part of the sigmoid and thus produces a superadditive response.
