This paper examines the feasibility of manifesting compositionality by a system of synfire chains. Compositionality is the ability to construct mental representations, hierarchically, in terms of parts and their relations. We show that synfire chains may synchronize their waves when a few orderly cross links are available. We propose that synchronization(More)
Competitive synchronization among synfire chains may model the dynamics of binding and compositionality. Typically, such models require simulations of hundreds of thousands of neurons. Here we show that the behavior of such large systems can be numerically analyzed by representing the neuronal activity in a synfire chain as a wave. The position and velocity(More)
