Abstract

Numerous experimental studies investigate how neural representations of a signal depend on its past context. Although synaptic plasticity and adaptation may play a crucial role to shape this dependence, we study here the hypothesis that this dependence upon past context may be also explained by dynamical network effects, in particular due to the recurrent nature of neural networks connectivity.
