The SOM has ancestors in von der Malsburg's "Self-Organization of Orientation Sensitive Cells in the Striate Cortex" and other early models of self-organization

The SOM is an abstraction of biologically-plausible ANN.

Von der Malsburg introduces a simple model of self-organization which explains the organization of direction-sensitive cells in the human visual cortex.
