Competitive Repetition-suppression (CoRe) Learning
The paper introduces Competitive Repetition-suppression (CoRe) learning, a novel paradigm inspired by a cortical mechanism of perceptual learning called repetition suppression. CoRe learning is an unsupervised, soft-competitive  model with conscience  that can be used for self-generating compact neural representations of the input stimuli. The key idea underlying the development of CoRe learning is to exploit the temporal distribution of neurons activations as a source of training information and to drive memory formation. As a case study, the paper reports the CoRe learning rules that have been derived for the unsupervised training of a Radial Basis Function network.
