Cortical pyramidal and stellate neurons were simulated using the GENESIS simulation package. Model neurons were leaky integrate-and-fire and consisted of from four to nine passive compartments. Neurophysiological measurements, based on single-cell recordings and patch-clamp experiments, provided...
We present a systematic approach to mean-field theory (MFT) in a general probabilistic setting without assuming a particular model. The mean-field equations derived here may serve as a local , and thus very simple, method for approximate inference in probabilistic models such as Boltzmann...
Topographic maps are found in many biological and artificial neural systems. In biological systems, some parts of these can form a significantly expanded representation of their sensory input, such as the representation of the fovea in the visual cortex. We propose that a cortical feature map...
Symmetrically connected recurrent networks have recently been used as models of a host of neural computations. However, biological neural networks have asymmetrical connections, at the very least because of the separation between excitatory and inhibitory neurons in the brain. We study...
Optimization of perceptron neural network classifiers requires an optimization algorithm that is robust. In general, the best network is selected after a number of optimization trials. An effective optimization algorithm generates good weight-vector solutions in a few optimization trial runs...
Several hypotheses concerning implementations of associative memory in the brain rely on analyses of the capabilities of simple network models. However, the low connectivity of cerebral networks imposes constraints which sometimes do not arise clearly from such analyses. We investigate an aspect...
