This note describes laws for the anatomy, potentials, spiking rules, and transmitters of some networks of formal neurons that enable them to learn spatial patterns by Pavlovian conditioning. Applications to spacetime pattern learning and operant conditioning are then possible, if the conditioning is viewed as multi-channel Pavlovian conditioning in a highly inhomogeneous anatomy. In suitable anatomies, biases in learning because of axon collaterals with nonuniformly distributed diameters can be… CONTINUE READING
