Competitive learning in biological and artificial neural computation

Nathan Intrator, Shimon Edelman

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In this review we will briefly discuss 'classical' competitive learning and approaches to competitive learning that involve mixtures of experts. We will then focus on competitive learning that is guided by the temporal structure that is present within the stimuli. In this context, we will describe a general principle for resource allocation and memory management, that may account for a range of psychophysical and neurophysiological findings.
