Title:Dynamics near low-dimensional attractors of neural networks.
Seminar:Working Seminar: Dynamics and its Working Tools
Speaker:Vladimir Itskov, Penn State
After a brief introduction to generic rate models of neural networks I will talk about "continuous attractor networks" that are hypothesized to underlie some critical functions in the mammalian brain. These networks are perturbations of systems that have a low-dimensional submanifold of steady states in the continuum limit. I will discuss basic properties of such networks and also pose some open questions.
