In this article, we investigate the effects of biologically-plausible local learning rules (Hebbian rules) on the global dynamics of firing-rate random recurrent neural networks. In these models, learning collapses the initially chaotic dynamics onto simpler attractors (limit cycle or fixed point) that are specific of the learned pattern. This phenomenon… CONTINUE READING
