Weights are initialized on every reset to random values chosen from a uniform distribution over the range specified in the control panel.

Weights are shown in the display with their magnitude and sign indicated by the color of the line.

The weights can be viewed visually by choosing ‘Weights->Show Weights’, which displays a new panel showing the relative magnitude of the weights.  Negative weights are shown as red ellipses, positive are black.  The user can select the weight layer to display from a check box at the bottom.  Absolute magnitudes are not shown.  To view absolute magnitudes, simply save the weights to a file and examine it in your favourite text editor.
