Overview | HNet | Performance Aspects | Mathematics | Biology

These consist of smaller star shaped neurons, which are located in all lamina of the cortex except layer I.  These neurons have short, extensively branched dendritic processes.  The axons of these cells may be varied in length and project to deeper layers of cortex, forming synaptic connections with the dendrites of nearby cells.  Stellate cells are estimated to have in the range of 10,000 to 50,000 synapses along the extent of their dendritic processes.

  Stellate cells

Stellate cells within HNeT perform the function of stimulus-response learning and memory storage.  The functional specificity of biological stellate cells is currently unknown
