A Neural Network Model of Pair-Association Memory in the Inferotemporal Cortex

Atsuo Suemitsu and Masahiko Morita

Abstract: Neurons related to pair-association memory have been found in the inferotemporal cortex of monkeys, but their activities do not accord with existing neural network models. The present paper describes a neural network model consisting of excitatory-inhibitory cell pairs, which recalls paired patterns based on a gradual shift of the network state. It is demonstrated by computer simulations that this model agrees well with the observed neuronal activities.
