How do we manage to recognize immediately, and to recall without effort, familiar words, sentences and other behavioural sequences? I suggest that we employ a system which is the temporal analogue of optical holography1–3. The analogy between holography and visual memory has already attracted attention in the literature, but this is not quite the thought that I shall pursue here ; rather I shall consider the time dimension, because any perceptual event must certainly be associated with cerebral… Expand

TLDR
It is shown that there is at least one other mathematical model, which is considered to be a closer analogue of holography, because it operates with triple products of the temporal function to be recognized or recalled. Expand
Improved Holographic Model of Temporal Recall
  • D. Gabor
  • Computer Science, Medicine

  • 1968
TLDR
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
The Non-local Storage and Associative Retrieval of Spatio-Temporal Patterns
It is an undeserved honor for someone who is a newcomer both to brain science and to automata theory to be asked to speak to a gathering such as this, so perhaps I had better begin with a briefExpand
Theories of associative recall.
TLDR
Most of the models developed beyond their initial hypotheses have a certain family resemblance, and it seems as if the authors may now be in possession of the basic ideas which will be needed for the understanding of one of the central problems of memory, namely the mechanism of associative recall.

Is Visual Memory Holographic?
CLAIMS by Longuet-Higgins1 and Greguss2 that memory might behave holographically are tested here in a situation of prompted visual recall. If a figure, of area f, is inspected by a subject (S) andExpand
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
Models of neural timing
Abstract That the central nervous system is capable of accurate encoding of time is obvious, as numerous human and animal experiments can demonstrate. But it is not at all clear how the phenomena ofExpand
Holographic Model of Temporal Recall
TLDR
This paper proposes a different system of diffuse memory storage, which is based on holography like that described by Gabor2 but differs from it in not requiring coherent repetitive vibrations. Expand
On the physics of CNS memory.
TLDR
A hypothesis of engram formation and the retrieval process of the information engraved is formulated and the description of the suggested mechanism is given, supported by discussion of the published experimental data. Expand
How Does the Striate Cortex Begin the Reconstruction of the Visual World?
TLDR
This work has shown that in the transform domain, invariant descriptions of visual objects can be derived to serve as the basic sets required for pattern recognition and memory in the striate cortex. Expand
