- Direction is drawn from Hebb's Cell Assembly (CA) hypothesis (1949).
- The neural representation of concepts is a recurrent network
of neurons with a high amount of mutual synaptic strength.
- So, a symbol is stored in a CA.
- A network can have a lot of CAs.
- Hebb's learning rule allows for the formation (or learning) of
CAs by mutual neural firing.
- If two neurons co-fire the strength between them tends to
- This gives an explanation of both long and short term memory.
- This is incomplete though. There also needs to be process.
