- Complementary Learning Systems
Complementary Learning Systems (CLS) theory holds that intelligent agents must possess two learning systems, instantiated in mammalians in neocortex and hippocampus. The first gradually acquires structured knowledge representations while the second quickly learns the specifics of individual experiences.
Included in this post is some materials from D Kumaran et al’s latest update article to CLS theory – What Learning Systems do Intelligent Agents Need? Complementary Learning Systems Theory Updated.
- Name-calling in the hippocampus
Name-calling in the hippocampus (and beyond): coming to terms with neuron types and properties
In order to alleviate this nomenclature confusion regarding hippocampal neuron types and properties, we introduce a new functionality of Hippocampome.org: a fully searchable, curated catalog of human and machine-readable definitions, each linked to the corresponding neuron and property terms. Furthermore, we extend our robust approach to providing each neuron type with an informative name and unique identifier by mapping all encountered synonyms and homonyms.
