How does the brain learn spatial information? Neuroinformaticians are on the trail of this question with an artificial intelligence.
Researchers at the Institute of Neuroinformatics at Ruhr-Universität Bochum have constructed a computer model that learns spatial information according to a pattern similar to that of rodents. In this process, individual sequences of nerve cell activity in the hippocampus are played back repeatedly according to certain priorities. If the artificial intelligence does the same, it learns spatial information faster than if the sequences are repeated randomly. Nicolas Diekmann and Prof. Dr. Sen Cheng report in the March 14, 2023 issue of the journal eLife.
