Title:Constraints from data on the architecture of neural and synaptic representations
Seminar:Theoretical Biology Seminar
Speaker:John Collins, Penn State (Physics)
(Host: Carina Curto)
Abstract:
I explore some ways in which key properties of behavioral and other data can constrain the architecture of the representations and functions in biological memory systems. First I examine working memory. Then I revisit the old issue of local v. distributed representations, and show that the concept of distributed representations needs to be split into several very different kinds.
