A fundamental property of cortical neurons is the capacity to exhibit adaptive changes or plasticity. Whether adaptive changes in cortical responses are accompanied by changes in synchrony between individual neurons and local population activity in sensory cortex is unclear. This issue is important as synchronized neural activity is hypothesized to play an(More)
We consider the effect of the effective timing of a delayed feedback on the excitatory neuron in a recurrent inhibitory loop, when biological realities of firing and absolute refractory period are incorporated into a phenomenological spiking linear or quadratic integrate-and-fire neuron model. We show that such models are capable of generating a large(More)
We consider a pair of stochastic integrate and fire neurons receiving correlated stochastic inputs. The evolution of this system can be described by the corresponding Fokker-Planck equation with non-trivial boundary conditions resulting from the refractory period and firing threshold. We propose a finite volume method that is orders of magnitude faster than(More)
We consider the issue of how a simple network with delayed feedback can exhibit complex but desired dynamical behaviors for memory storage and retrieval. We discuss the simplicity-capacity dilemma arising from the requirement of both large capacity and easy implementation in additive networks. We then propose a novel approach based on signal processing(More)
