Chaotic behaviors are often shown in the biological brains. They are related strongly to the memory storage and learning in the chaotic neural networks. The incremental learning is a method to compose an associative memory using a chaotic neural network and provides larger capacity than the Hebbian rule in compensation for amount of computation. In the former works, patterns were generated randomly to have plus 1 in half of elements and minus 1 in the others. When finely-tuned parameters were used, the network learned these pattern features, well. But, this result could be taken as an over-learning. Then, we proposed pattern generating methods to avoid over-learning and tested the patterns, in which the ratio of plus 1 and minus 1 is different from 1 to 1. In this paper, our simulations investigate the capacity of the usual chaotic neural network and that of the simplified chaotic neural network with these patterns to ensure no over-learning.
