UW research provides a basic structure of neural networks in the mammalian brain

Two University of Wyoming researchers decided to pick each other’s brain, so to speak. Specifically, they examined the importance of the frontal cortex, the portion of the brain used in decision-making, expressive language and voluntary movement.

And the two scientists learned that a recurrent neural network structure, or RNN, is responsible for those functions.

“This RNN receives inputs from emotional regions of the brain and sends outputs to the motor cortex, the part of the brain responsible for voluntary movement,” says Qian-Quan Sun, a UW professor of zoology and physiology. “In the artificial intelligence field, computer scientists have designed various artificial neural networks, including RNNs, which effectively solve problems, such as language translation and…
