Summary form only given. The exceedingly regular and intricate neuroanatomy of the vertebrate cerebellar cortex has prompted many speculations about its function. The author reviews and assesses… Expand
The features of a hologram that commend it as a model of associative memory can be improved on by other devices.
The characterization of gray matter morphology of individual brains is an important issue in neuroscience. Graph theory has been used to describe cortical morphology, with networks based on… Expand
Associative matrix memories with real-valued synapses have been studied in many incarnations. We consider how the signal/noise ratio for associations depends on the form of the learning rule, and we… Expand
There exist in certain nervous systems topological mappings of one set of spatially ordered nerve cells onto another, whose formation has not yet been satisfactorily explained. In this paper the role… Expand
The associative net is a fully connected feedforward associative memory, with one layer of input units, one layer of output units and binary valued weights. Its simple structure and the form of the… Expand
This paper presents how neural swimming controllers for a simulated lamprey can be developed using evolutionary algorithms. A genetic algorithm is used for evolving the architecture of a… Expand
Many types of retinal neurone are arranged in a spatially regular manner so that the visual scene is uniformly sampled. Several mechanisms are thought to be involved in the development of regular… Expand
The concept of topographic mapping is central to the understanding of the visual system at many levels, from the developmental to the computational. It is important to be able to relate different… Expand
Numerical calculations have been used to assess the performance of three different winners-take-all recall strategies for the associative net model of heteroassociative memory. Two strategies… Expand
