Cooperative effects in neural networks appear because a neuron fires only if a minimal number m of its inputs are excited. The multiple inputs requirement leads to a percolation model termed quorum percolation. The connectivity undergoes a phase transition as m grows, from a network–spanning cluster at low m to a set of disconnected clusters above a… CONTINUE READING
