There have been many studies about dynamics of neural fields. Especially, the neural field which allowed localized excitation areas provided base for the self-organizing map (SOM) algorithm. Here, we focus on a neural oscillatory field, and propos...

物体の向き, 位置, 大きさなどによらない不変な認識が脳内でどのように実現されているかは不明な点が多い.大脳の視覚一次野(V1)には, 網膜に投影された像のある程度の大きさの領域内であればどの場所に線分が提示されても反応する複雑型細胞と呼ばれる細胞があり, 物体の見え方に不変な認識に重要な役割を担っていると考えられている.この複雑型細胞がもつ性質は, 神経活動の時間的持続性を利用したヘブ学習(トレース学習)により説明されてきた.本論文では, 従来のモデルで示された結果と同等な性質を, トレ...

A large number of equilibrium states or fixed points is in a randomly and symmetrically connected neural network. Recently it has been shown that the maximum number which can be realized depend on the model of the single neuron. Here we show some ...

A class of recurrent neural networks is considered in which w_<ij>the connection weight from the jth to the ith element, is randomly generated under the condition wij=wji. The expected number of equilibrium states in the network consisting of two-...

Probabilistic generative models work in many applications of image analysis and speech recognition. In general, there is an observation vector y and a state vector x, and a joint dependency structure among them. The object of interest is, given y,...

We propose a learning algorithm for Boltzmann neural fields [1] developed by Kurata (1988). The Boltzmann machine learning algorithm is theoretically elegant and easy to implement in hardware but very slow in networks with interconnected hidden un...

For university students, if learning dynamics of neural network models is shown graphically in computer simulation, it accelerates the understanding of the behavior of the models. I have made the software for this purpose. Here I exemplify the cod...

In 2008, Professor Hopfield proposed a network model of associative memory which can rapidly detect the failure of memory recalls. The model consists of neurons with piecewise linear activity function, and stores struc-tured sparsely-encoded activ...

The area of hippocampus in the brain is involved in associative memory recall in which new neurons are born every day. To study the meaning of new-born neurons, we analyzed a property of associative memory networks in which a number of units are r...
