Dynamics of neural networks with elapsed time model and learning processes

Abstract : We introduce and study a new model of interacting neural networks, incorporating the spatial dimension (e.g. position of neurons across the cortex) and some learning processes. The dynamic of each neural network is described via the elapsed time model, that is, the neurons are described by the elapsed time since their last discharge and the chosen learning processes are essentially inspired from the Hebbian rule. We then obtain a system of integro-differential equations, from which we analyze the convergence to stationary states by the means of entropy method and Doeblin's theory in the case of weak interconnections. We also consider the situation where neural activity is faster than the learning process and give conditions where one can approximate the dynamics by a solution with a similar profile of a steady state. For stronger interconnections, we present some numerical simulations to observe how the parameters of the system can give different behaviors and pattern formations.
