A parallel supercomputer implementation of a biological inspired neural network and its use for pattern recognition
Abstract : A parallel implementation of a large spiking neural network is proposed and evaluated. The neural network implements the binding by synchrony process using the Oscillatory Dynamic Link Matcher (ODLM). Scalability, ...
Brain at work : time, sparseness and superposition principles
Abstract : Many studies explored mechanisms through which the brain encodes sensory inputs allowing a coherent behavior. The brain could identify stimuli via a hierarchical stream of activity leading to a cardinal neuron ...
Sensorial substitution system with encoding of visual objects into sounds
Abstract : Visual and auditory prostheses involve surgeries that are complex, expensive, and invasive. They are limited to a small number of electrodes and can only be used when the impairment is peripheral. The Vibe and ...
Synergistic activity between primary visual neurons
Abstract : Cortical microcircuitry plays a pivotal role in encoding sensory information reaching the cortex. However, the fundamental knowledge concerning the mechanisms that govern feature-encoding by these sub-networks ...
Modulation of functional connectivity following visual adaptation: homeostasis in V1
Abstract: Sensory neurons exhibit remarkable adaptability in acquiring new optimal selectivity to unfamiliar features when a new stimulus becomes prevalent in the environment. In conventionally prepared adult anesthetized ...

Audiovisual correspondence between musical timbre and visual shapes
Abstract : This article investigates the cross-modal correspondences between musical timbre and shapes. Previously, such features as pitch, loudness, light intensity, visual size, and color characteristics have mostly been ...
A flexible bio-inspired hierarchical model for analyzing musical timbre
A flexible and multipurpose bio-inspired hierarchical model for analyzing musical timbre is presented in this paper. Inspired by findings in the fields of neuroscience, computational neuroscience, and psychoacoustics, not ...
High noise correlation between the functionally connected neurons in emergent V1 microcircuits
Abstract : Neural correlations (noise correlations and cross-correlograms) are widely studied to infer functional connectivity between neurons. High noise correlations (Rsc) between neurons have been reported to increase ...
Summation of connectivity strengths in the visual cortex reveals stability of neuronal microcircuits after plasticity
Abstract : Background: Within sensory systems, neurons are continuously affected by environmental stimulation. Recently, we showed that, on cell-pair basis, visual adaptation modulates the connectivity strength between ...
