Sliding Global Attractors of Neural Learning and Memory

  title={Sliding Global Attractors of Neural Learning and Memory},
  author={Yoram Baram},
The highly variable nature of neural firing has been recognized by diverse empirical and analytic findings. Here, the underlying morphology of neural firing is shown to be governed by a bilinear map, prescribing eight types of neuronal global attractors and their points of local bifurcation. While synaptic learning gives rise to irregular firing, membrane memory is shown to guarantee that, under the same external activation, learning and retrieval end at the same global attractor. Forced and… CONTINUE READING
