Neural dynamics of cross-modal and cross-temporal associations
We have studied a neurodynamic model of cross-modal and cross-temporal associations. We show that a network of integrate-and-fire neurons can generate spiking activity with realistic dynamics during the delay period of a paired associates task. In particular, the activity of the model resembles reported data from single-cell recordings in the prefrontal cortex.
