A Hopfield-like neural network designed with projection learning rule is considered. The relationship between the weight values and the number of prototypes is obtained. A coefficient of self-connection reduction, termed the desaturating coefficient, is introduced and the technique which allows the network to exhibit complete error correction for learning ratios up to 75% is suggested. The paper presents experimental data and provides theoretical background explaining the results.
