Based on the studies of existing local-connected neural network models, in this brief, we present a new spiking cortical neural networks model and find that time matrix of the model can be recognized as a human subjective sense of stimulus intensity. The series of output pulse images of a proposed model represents the segment, edge, and texture features of the original image, and can be calculated based on several efficient measures and forms a sequence as the feature of the original image. We characterize texture images by the sequence for an invariant texture retrieval. The experimental results show that the retrieval scheme is effective in extracting the rotation and scale invariant features. The new model can also obtain good results when it is used in other image processing applications.
