A model describing the dynamics of the synaptic weights of a single neuron performing Hebbian learning is described. The neuron is repeatedly excited by a set of input patterns. Its response is modeled as a continuous, nonlinear function of its excitation. We study how the model forms a self-organized representation of the set of input patterns. The dynamical equations are solved directly in a few simple cases. The model is studied for random patterns by a signal to noise analysis, and by… CONTINUE READING
