Associative Memory in a Network of 'Biological' Neurons
Neural Information Processing Systems
The Hopfield network (Hopfield, 1982 (Hopfield, ,1984) ) provides a simple model of an associative memory in a neuronal structure. This model, however, is based on highly artificial assumptions, especially the use of formal-two state neurons (Hopfield, 1982) or graded-response neurons (Hopfield, 1984) . \Vhat happens if we replace the formal neurons by 'real' biological neurons? \Ve address this question in two steps. First, we show that a simple model of a neuron can capture all relevantdblp:conf/nips/Gerstner90 fatcat:nq4nna33n5dl5cq3vqdgjj5lvm
