PROFESSOR LONGUET-HIGGINS1 has called attention to the remarkable property of human memory of recognizing and recalling long sequences of which at first only a small fraction is consciously remembered, and he has devised a most interesting, physically realizable mathematical model which achieves just this. He has rightly called this a temporal analogue of holography. I wish to show that there is at least one other mathematical model, which I consider to be a closer analogue of holography… Expand

The modified static system described here is an alternative to Longuet-Higgins' model and takes account of the weaknesses of the nervous system as well as of its powers to imitate human memory with models. Expand
A columnar model explaining long-term memory
This study examined the performance of columnar memory and found that it was comparable to holographic memory and showed that this model could explain the above-mentioned experimental results as well as associative memory. Expand
Holographic aspects of temporal memory and optomotor responses
A mathematical analogy between the holographic models of temporal memory and Reichardt's optomotor theory is stressed. It is pointed out that the sequence of operations which is essential to anyExpand
A holographic model for associative memory chains
The underlying principles are feedback mechanisms, nonlinearities of the storage material and tridimensional architecture of the voluminous recording medium, which evidently occur in neural storage systems supporting analogous information processing in neural- and holographic systems. Expand
Holographic reduced representation in artificial intelligence and cognitive science
Holographic reduced representation is based on a suitable distributive coding of structured information in conceptual vectors, which elements satisfy normal distribution N(0,1/n). ExistingExpand

By means of the Volterra series an extension of the association properties of holography is proposed. Also, the significance of non-linearities embedded within the formal structure of aExpand
A mathematical model of capacious and efficient memory that survives trauma
The brain's memory system can store without any apparent constraint, it recalls stored information efficiently and it is robust against lesion. Existing models of memory do not fully account for allExpand

A proof-of-principle that the pervasive tendency of the brain to reduce auto-correlations may result in representations of information that are already adequately compatible with convolution, supporting the neural plausibility of convolution-based association-memory. Expand
Illusions of vision: Interpretation within the framework of a holographic model
Several illusions of vision are considered on the basis of a neurophysiological holographic model of visual perception at the level of the eye’s and the retina. It is suggested that the eye’s opticalExpand
An Associative Memory for Auditory Recall
A model of auditory temporal recall based on correlographic recording and Interrogation by convolution is presented, which produces variable-length and cyclic sound-segment recall from fragmentary cues. Expand


Holographic Model of Temporal Recall
The time dimension is considered, because any perceptual event must certainly be associated with cerebral happenings which are extended not only in space but in time, and some familiar phenomena of perception be naturally explained. Expand
