A method of statistical neurodynamics

  title={A method of statistical neurodynamics},
  author={Shun-ichi Amari},
A method of statistical neurodynamics is presented for treating ensembles of nets of randomly connected neuron-like elements. The concept of a macrostate plays a fundamental role in statistical neurodynamics and a criterion is given for ascertaining that given macroscopic quantities together constitute a macrostate. The activity of a nerve net is shown to be a macrostate and the equation of the dynamics of the activity is elucidated for various ensembles of random nerve nets. It is shown that… CONTINUE READING
