Quotes

"Grab the brain early enough, and the doors to learning and the universe remain open" says Sharma
..."While it seems that moving and sensing are two independent processes, a lot of new research suggests that they are deeply coupled," Mr Lee said. "My hope is that our study can help solidify our understanding of how the brain functions differently in 'alert' states."
"Previous studies have examined changes in the visual cortex of mice during"
...with support vector machines, the encoding and learning processes of the SNN were fast for training images and moderately fast for testing images. "We utilized biologically plausible mechanisms to build a cognitive system that is capable of effective and efficient cognitive computations,” says Tang. “Together with other related works, this paper paves the way for constructing a general structure of spiking neural systems for cognitive computation."
