ABSTRACT Chaotic dynamics introduced in a recurrent neural network model is applied to controlling an object to track a moving target in two-dimensional space, which is set as an ill-posed problem. The motion increments of the object are determined by a group of motion functions calculated in real time with firing states of the neurons in the network. Several cyclic memory attractors that correspond to several simple motions of the object in two-dimensional space are embedded. Chaotic dynamics introduced in the network causes corresponding complex motions of the object in two-dimensional space. Adaptively real-time switching of control parameter results in constrained chaos (chaotic itinerancy) in the state space of the network and enables the object to track a moving target along a certain trajectory successfully. The performance of tracking is evaluated by calculating the success rate over 100 trials with respect to nine kinds of trajectories along which the target moves respectively. Computer experiments show that chaotic dynamics is useful to track a moving target. To understand the relations between these cases and chaotic dynamics, dynamical structure of chaotic dynamics is investigated from dynamical viewpoint.

    ABSTRACT: We treated the interactions between two nonequilibrium neural networks, each of which possesses memories that are different from those of the other. In this respect, we developed a kind of hetero interaction that is a crucial ingredient for assuring communication.We propose a new learning algorithm for assuring different neural activity in both the maintenance of own memories and the learning of other memories (which are different from own memories). We call it novelty-induced learning.

    ABSTRACT: In this article, we analyze combined effects of LTP/LTD and synaptic scaling and study the creation of persistent activity from a periodic or chaotic baseline attractor. The bifurcations leading to the creation of new attractors have been detailed; this was achieved using a mean field approximation. Attractors encoding persistent activity can notably appear via generalized period-doubling bifurcations, tangent bifurcations of the second iterates or boundary crises, after which the basins of attraction become irregular. Synaptic scaling is shown to maintain the coexistence of a state of persistent activity and the baseline. According to the rate of change of the external inputs, different types of attractors can be formed: line attractors for rapidly changing external inputs and discrete attractors for constant external inputs.

    ABSTRACT: We model the vague-to-crisp dynamics of forming percepts in the brain by combining two methodologies: dynamic logic (DL) and operant learning process. Forming percepts upon the presentation of visual inputs is likened to model selection based on sampled evidence. Our framework utilizes the DL in selecting the correct “percept” among competing ones, but uses an intrinsic reward mechanism to allow stochastic online update in lieu of performing the optimization step of the DL framework. We discuss the connection of our framework with cognitive processing and the intentional neurodynamic cycle.
