Significance testing without truth
Over the last ten or more years, abstract and simplified models of brain functions have been a target of research in statistical physics (Amit, 1989; Hertz et al., 1991). A model of an associative memory was proposed by Hopfield in 1982, following earlier work by Caianello and Little.
Neural Networks
A great deal of qualitative and quantitative understanding of such associative memories has come from a model proposed by Hopfield (Hopfield, 1982; Amit, 1989; Hertz et al., 1991).
Neural Networks
For initial states having a finite overlap with more than one pattern, the attractor reached can be a new state, called spurious state, composed of parts of several learnt patterns (Amit et al., 1985; Amit, 1989).
Neural Networks
For higher loading, the influence of these remaining patterns has to be taken into account. A more thorough investigation (Amit et al., 1985; Amit, 1989; Hertz et al., 1991) shows that this has two effects.
Neural Networks
Within models of neural networks based on spiking neurons, this issue has been addressed by Amit et al. (1994; 1996).
