Abstract:

A syncoder is an electronic model of some of the information processing properties of nerve cells. The operation of a single syncoder near threshold is investigated for transient pulse-pair inputs. The results obtained from this stimulus are presented in graphical form and a notation which is useful for describing network interconnections is proposed. Investigation of some of the algebraic properties of syncoder networks shows the syncoding operation near threshold to be noncommutative, nonassociative, and nondistributive, as well as nonlinear. An appendix contains a complete circuit description of a single syncoder. Author
