Alkon comes to Neurotrope after 30 years directing programs on the molecular basis of associative memory at the National Neurologic Institute of NIH, and another 15 years as the Founding Scientific Director of the Blanchette Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute where he and his team developed neurorestorative therapeutics for degenerative disorders of the central nervous system.
In HBP, Ulrich Rckert deals with associative memory, conducting research on neuronal networks.
For example, the process of associative memory plays an important role in Woolf's art.
"Intel Saffron AI uses associative memory learning and reasoning.
Using Saffron's National Intelligence Platform, as well as associative memory classification, we reached a 90% accuracy rate in diagnosing constrictive pericarditis and cardiomyopathy.
By their very nature, these analyses are focused on relations between specific texts and a delimited set of sources; as such, they leave little room for the flickering, fleeting, even random connections a theory of associative memory would allow for.
Zurada, "Complex-valued multistate neural associative memory," IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks, vol.
Although there is debate about the roles of cerebellar cortex and DCN in the acquisition and retention of EBCC [3, 29], the second hypothesis would be supported by data indicating that retention of associative memory mostly relies on activity in the DCN [42-44], particularly in their synapses with afferent mossy fibers [45-49].
A memristor based circuit which is capable of associative memory is operated as an application of proposed memristor emulator.
Among these: The Memory Binding Test (or Memory Capacity Test), which uses recall to reveal memory loss in patients without symptoms, using colors and shapes; The Face-Name Associative Memory Exam (FNAME), which tests associative memory by showing photos of faces and names and asking the person to recall the face-name pairs; and The Behavioral Pattern Separation-Object Test, which assesses recognition of familiar objects to detect early signs of mild cognitive impairment.
Given l (l [less than or equal to] [2.sup.n]) pairs of bipolar vectors ([u.sup.(1)], [q.sup.(1)]), ([u.sup.(2)], [q.sup.(2)]), ..., [u.sup.(l)], [q.sup.(l)]), where [u.sup.(r)], [q.sup.(r)] [member of] [OMEGA], for r = 1,2, ..., l, design an associative memory model which satisfies the notion that the output of the model will converge to the corresponding pattern [q.sup.(r)] when [u.sup.(r)] is fed to the model input as a memory pattern.
This motivates our development of a computational framework, using the Hopfield model for associative memory, which can provide a platform to study the conditions in which an auxiliary external network may prevent and/or reverse TBI and neurodegenerative impairments.
