The rapidity of time-constrained visual identification suggests a feedforward process in which neural activity is propagated through a number of cortical stages. The process is modeled by using a synfire chain, leading to a neural-network model which involves propagating activation waves through a sequence of layers. Theory and analysis of the model's behavior, especially in the presence of noise, predict enhancement of wave propagation for a range of noise intensities. Simulation studies… CONTINUE READING
