Abstract : This is written to provide a semi-annual progress report for the contract N00014-91-J-1316 entitled 'Neuromorphic Systems: From Biological Foundations to System Properties and Real World Applications.' The major goal of our research is to elucidate the biological mechanisms that underlie learning and memory: to find principles of organization that can account both for experimental data on the cellular level and, when applied to large numbers of neurons that receive sensory and/or interneuronal information, for various higher level system properties. Then to apply this in the construction of advanced neural architectures that can be used in practical applications such as mine detection.
