Abstract

We discuss an attractor neural network in which only a fraction ρ of nodes is simultaneously updated. In addition, the network has a heterogeneous distribution of connection weights and, depending on the current degree of order, connections are changed at random by a factor Φ on short-time scales. The resulting dynamic attractors may become unstable in a certain range of Φ thus ensuing chaotic itineracy which highly depends on ρ. For intermediate values of ρ, we observe that the number of attractors visited increases with ρ, and that the trajectory may change from regular to chaotic and vice versa as ρ is modified. Statistical analysis of time series shows a power-law spectra under conditions in which the attractors' space is most efficiently explored.
