Pattern formation in intracortical neuronal fields
This paper introduces a neuronal field model for both excitatory and inhibitory connections. A single integro-differential equation with delay is derived and studied at a critical point by stabilityExpand

Associative memory in networks of spiking neurons
Here, we develop and investigate a computational model of a network of cortical neurons on the base of biophysically well constrained and tested two-compartmental neurons developed by Pinsky andExpand

A neuroanatomically grounded Hebbian-learning model of attention–language interactions in the human brain
Meaningful familiar stimuli and senseless unknown materials lead to different patterns of brain activation. A late major neurophysiological response indexing ‘sense’ is the negative component ofExpand

Controlling the Speed of Synfire Chains
This paper deals with the propagation velocity of synfire chain activation in locally connected networks of artificial spiking neurons. Analytical expressions for the propagation speed are derivedExpand

Modelling studies on the computational function of fast temporal structure in cortical circuit activity
The interplay between modelling and experimental studies can support the exploration of the function of neuronal circuits in the cortex. We exemplify such an approach with a study on the role ofExpand

Language models based on Hebbian cell assemblies
This paper demonstrates how associative neural networks as standard models for Hebbian cell assemblies can be extended to implement language processes in large-scale brain simulations. To this endExpand

A Neurocomputational Model of Stimulus-Specific Adaptation to Oddball and Markov Sequences
Stimulus-specific adaptation (SSA) occurs when the spike rate of a neuron decreases with repetitions of the same stimulus, but recovers when a different stimulus is presented. It has been suggestedExpand

Cell Assemblies, Associative Memory and Temporal Structure in Brain Signals
In this work we discuss Hebb's old ideas about cell assemblies in the light of recent results concerning temporal structure and correlations in neural signals. We want to give a conceptual,Expand

Spatial dynamics of receptive fields in cat primary visual cortex related to the temporal structure of thalamocortical feedforward activity
We investigated how changes in the temporal firing rate of thalamocortical activity affect the spatiotemporal structure of receptive field (RF) subunits in cat primary visual cortex. Spike activityExpand

From Structure to Activity: Using Centrality Measures to Predict Neuronal Activity
It is clear that the topological structure of a neural network somehow determines the activity of the neurons within it. In the present work, we ask to what extent it is possible to examine theExpand
