An oscillatory neural network model of multiple object tracking is described. The model works with a set of identical visual objects moving around the screen. At the initial stage, the model selects into the focus of attention a subset of objects initially marked as targets. Other objects are used as distractors. The model aims to preserve the initial(More)
A model of novelty detection is developed which is based on an oscillatory mechanism of memory formation and information processing. The frequency encoding of the input information and adaptation of natural frequencies of network oscillators to the frequency of the input signal are used as the mechanism of information storage. The resonance amplification of(More)
A neural network model is considered which is designed as a system of phase oscillators and contains the central oscillator and peripheral oscillators which interact via the central oscillator. The regime of partial synchronization was studied when current frequencies of the central oscillator and one group of peripheral oscillators are near to each other(More)
We develop a new oscillatory model that combines consecutive selection of objects and discrimination between new and familiar objects. The model works with visual information and fulfils the following operations: (1) separation of different objects according to their spatial connectivity; (2) consecutive selection of objects located in the visual field into(More)
A new mechanism to control attention focus formation and switching in the model of selective attention is suggested and studied. The model is based on an oscillatory neural network (ONN) with the star-like architecture and phase shifts in connections between oscillators. Attention is modelled as a dynamical mode of partial synchronisation between a(More)
We develop and study two neural network models of perceptual alternations. Both models have a star-like architecture of connections with a central element connected to a set of peripheral elements. A particular perception is simulated in terms of partial synchronization between the central element and some sub-group of peripheral elements. The first model(More)
The paper considers computational models of spatio-temporal patterns of neural activity to check hypotheses about the role of synchronisation, temporal and phase relations in information processing. Three sections of the paper are devoted, respectively, to the neuronal coding; to the study of phase relations of oscillatory activity in neural assemblies; and(More)
A new biologically plausible model of visual selective attention is developed based on synaptically coupled Hodgkin-Huxley neurons. The model is designed according to a two-layer architecture of excitatory and inhibitory connections which comprises two central neurons and a population of peripheral neurons. Two types of inhibition from the central neurons(More)
We present an oscillatory network of conductance based spiking neurons of Hodgkin-Huxley type as a model of memory storage and retrieval of sequences of events (or objects). The model is inspired by psychological and neurobiological evidence on sequential memories. The building block of the model is an oscillatory module which contains excitatory and(More)
