Memory Capacity of Balanced Networks

  title={Memory Capacity of Balanced Networks},
  author={Yuval Aviel and David Horn and Moshe Abeles},
  journal={Neural Computation},
We study the problem of memory capacity in balanced networks of spiking neurons. Associative memories are represented by either synfire chains (SFC) or Hebbian cell assemblies (HCA). Both can be embedded in these balanced networks by a proper choice of the architecture of the network. The size WE of a pool in an SFC or of an HCA is limited from below and from above by dynamical considerations. Proper scaling of WE by K, where K is the total excitatory synaptic connectivity, allows us to obtain… CONTINUE READING
