We are neighbors here in NY.I suggest you read the book
entitled "The Wet Mind: The New Cognitive Neuroscience" by
Stephen M. Kosslyn and Oliver Koenig, Macmillan, Inc., New
York, 1992. You won't be able to put it down.It is a fully
documented work which is worthwhile, even for the bibliography
alone after each chapter. Very very detailed. It goes into
neural network models in terms of in-put/out-put mapping.
Also, check the recently started up Journal called the Journal
of Cognitive Neuroscience. A combination of these materials
should bring you into current, cutting edge strategies in
memory in-put, coding, decoding and motor program out-puts,
combined with current neurobiochemical research developments.
You won't be the same (you will have new, complicated and
complex synapse connections in this area!)after reviewing this
latest stuff on synapse biology and memory.
