We provide an overview and comparison of several recent large-scale brain models. In addition to discussing challenges involved with building large neural models, we identify several expected benefits of pursuing such a research program. We argue that these benefits are only likely to be realized if two basic guidelines are made central to the pursuit. The(More)
Hippocampal cells replay sequences of neural activity that have been experienced in the past, implicating the hippocampus in episodic memory. We present a spik-ing-neuron attractor network model that can encode arbitrary experiences in a combination of learned connection weights and neural activity. The model can then recall part or all of the encoded(More)

Perceptual decision making is a fundamental cognitive process widely studied in the behavioural sciences (Gold & Shadlen, 2007; Wang, 2008). We present a novel, biologically plausible model of visual motion processing and perceptual decision making, which is independent of the number of choice categories or alternatives. The implementation is presented in(More)
