Simulation of contra-lateral inhibition using venn-networks

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper illustrates how a computer model, based on Venn-networks, mimics a physiological phenomenon present in brains of higher animals: contra-lateral inhibition. The experiments were carried out by utilizing the GVNS, i.e. Generalized Venn-network Simulator. The data-set utilized in all simulations consisted of digital representations of finger positions of a piano player when performing a Mozart sonata. Results show that it is possible for the referred computer model to simultaneously exhibit topological network activations while controlling a simple task such as 'moving fingers' as well as incorporating contra-lateral like inhibition. © 2007 - IOS Press and the authors.
