Exploring discrete approaches to lossy compression schemes for natural image patches

Ram Mehta; Sarah Marzen; Christopher Hillar 2015 23rd European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO), 2015

Optimal compressions in a rate-distortion sense are usually discrete random variables, so clever discretizations of natural images might be key to developing better compression schemes. A new image compression method achieved good perceptual coding performance by using as primitives memories of a Hopfield network trained on discretized natural images. Here we explore why Hopfield network fixed-points are good lossy perceptual ...


Optical sensing of neural activity in brain tissues

Jonghwan Lee; Sung June Kim 2009 IEEE Sensors, 2009

This study, for the first time to our knowledge, demonstrated the spectral measurement of neural activity in brain tissues. Since the conventional optical sensing methods of brain activity suffered from the time delay of several seconds, this paper is aimed to a fundamental study for the development of a fast sensing technique free from the latency. For this purpose, we ...


Improved Integral Equation Solution for the First Passage Time of Leaky Integrate-and-Fire Neurons

Yi Dong; Stefan Mihalas; Ernst Niebur Neural Computation, 2011

An accurate calculation of the first passage time probability density (FPTPD) is essential for computing the likelihood of solutions of the stochastic leaky integrate-and-fire model. The previously proposed numerical calculation of the FPTPD based on the integral equation method discretizes the probability current of the voltage crossing the threshold. While the method is accurate for high noise levels, we show ...


Facilitating Effect of 15-Hz Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on Tactile Perceptual Learning

Ahmed A. Karim; Anne Schüler; Yiwen Li Hegner; Eva Friedel; Ben Godde Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2006

Recent neuroimaging studies have revealed that tactile perceptual learning can lead to substantial reorganizational changes of the brain. We report here for the first time that combining high-frequency (15 Hz) repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over the primary somatosensory cortex (SI) with tactile discrimination training is capable of facilitating operant perceptual learning. Most notably, increasing the excitability of SI by ...


Fusiform Activation to Animals is Driven by the Process, Not the Stimulus

Timothy T. Rogers; Julia Hocking; Andrea Mechelli; Karalyn Patterson; Cathy Price Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2005

Previous studies have found that the lateral posterior fusiform gyri respond more robustly to pictures of animals than pictures of manmade objects and suggested that these regions encode the visual properties characteristic of animals. We suggest that such effects actually reflect processing demands arising when items with similar representations must be finely discriminated. In a positron emission tomography (PET) study ...

  • Cognitive Control, Cognitive Search, and Motivational Salience: A Systems Neuroscience Approach

    An essential facet of adaptive and versatile behavior is the ability to prioritize actions in response to dynamically changing circumstances, in particular when circumstances require the coordination of a planned course of action vis-a-vis instantaneous urges and extraneously triggered reactions. This chapter focuses on one aspect of cognitive search: the exploration of internal and external milieu for motivationally salient events (stimuli that are novel, ambiguous, infrequent, deviant, or unexpected, or register as a risk for undesirable outcomes or a risk for the exhaustion of resources) which may require appropriate adaptive action. A neurocognitive framework is described for understanding how cognitive control and cognitive search are modulated by motivationally salient events. This framework emphasizes the integration of a salience network in the brain with other large-scale neural networks, neurotransmitter systems, and homeostatic (autonomic nervous system) functioning. The anterior insula cortex and anterior cingulate cortex are core nodes of a salience network that monitors for motivationally salient stimuli. This framework helps to amalgamate findings from disparate literatures into a common conjecture and highlights the role of motivational salience in modulating cognitive search and cognitive control. The salience network transforms salience signals into an orienting response which serves to recruit the necessary physiological arousal and to engage task-relevant networks (involving attentional, working-memory, and adaptive action selection processes) while disengaging task-negative networks. Using representative examples as instructive points in case, it is argued that this integrative systems-neuroscience framework provides a parsimonious account of salience processing, and may provide novel insights into the neural basis of individual differences among healthy as well as pathological populations.

  • Computational Neuroethology: A Provisional Manifesto

    This paper questions approaches to computational modeling of neural mechanisms underlying behaviour. It examines the "simplifying" (connectionist) models used in computational neuroscience and concludes that, unless embedded within a sensorimotor system, they are meaningless. The implication is that future models should be situated within closed-environment simulation systems: output of the simulated nervous system is then expressed as observable behaviour. This approach is referred to as "computational neuroethology". Computational neuroethology offers a firmer grounding for the semantics of the model, eliminating subjectivity from the resultinterpretation process. A number of more fundamental implications of the approach are also discussed, chief of which is that insect cognition should be studied in preference to mammalian cognition.

  • Formal Analyses

    What makes people smarter than computers? These volumes by a pioneering neurocomputing group suggest that the answer lies in the massively parallel architecture of the human mind. They describe a new theory of cognition called connectionism that is challenging the idea of symbolic computation that has traditionally been at the center of debate in theoretical discussions about the mind. The authors' theory assumes the mind is composed of a great number of elementary units connected in a neural network. Mental processes are interactions between these units which excite and inhibit each other in parallel rather than sequential operations. In this context, knowledge can no longer be thought of as stored in localized structures; instead, it consists of the connections between pairs of units that are distributed throughout the network. Volume 1 lays the foundations of this exciting theory of parallel distributed processing, while Volume 2 applies it to a number of specific issues in cognitive science and neuroscience, with chapters describing models of aspects of perception, memory, language, and thought.

  • Brain-Computer Interface Applied to Motor Recovery after Brain Injury

    This chapter deals with the early investigations of brain - computer interface (BCI) systems applied to the goal of motor recovery after neural injury, as well as some of the difficulties encountered. It explains the application of noninvasive BCIs to physical rehabilitation. Noninvasive BCIs include those that use electroencephalographical (EEG) recordings from the surface of the scalp, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) recordings, and magnetoencephalographic (MEG) recordings. The chapter also discusses neuroscience evidence of brain plasticity and theoretical strategies for BCIs in motor learning. It concludes with feasibility studies of noninvasive BCI. These studies address the following issues: identification of motor task practice that can produce a brain signal that can be used in rehabilitation, identification of brain signal features that can be used in rehabilitation, and ease and accuracy of the use of BCI training.
