— In this paper an autonomous switching between two basic attention selection mechanisms, top-down and bottom-up, is proposed, substituting manual switching. This approach fills the gab in object search using conventional top-down biased bottom-up attention selection: the latter one fails, if a group of objects is searched whose appearances can not be(More)
Complex patterns of neural activity appear during up-states in the neocortex and sharp waves in the hippocampus, including sequences that resemble those during prior behavioral experience. The mechanisms underlying this replay are not well understood. How can small synaptic footprints engraved by experience control large-scale network activity during memory(More)
Electrophysiological recordings suggest that cortical circuits operate in a regime where the excitatory and inhi-bitory currents received by individual neurons are highly correlated in both time and stimulus selectivity. For such balanced input, neurons are activated by fluctuations in the input and tend to fire asynchronously and at irregular time(More)
Sharp wave-ripples (SWRs) are highly synchronous network events displayed by the mammalian hippocampus during slow-wave sleep and immobile resting periods. A SWR event (~100 ms duration) is characterized by fast network oscillations (~200 Hz " ripples ") superimposed by a sharp wave, which is a large-amplitude, low-frequency (<10 Hz) signature in the local(More)
