Interval timing dependent handwriting generation task using a reservoir of 3000 rate-coded neurons. A. Basic structure of the recurrent neural network with input, reservoir and output connections for a temporal pattern generation task (inset shows single reservoir neuron properties). B. Inputs to the reservoir consisting of 26x2 dimensions (x and y co-ordinates of alphabets a-z) and an additional auxiliary input fixed at 1.0 (not shown). Inputs are given as a brief stimulus of 210ms. C. Network learns to write the word ‘memory’ cursively. The desired trajectory is shown in black and color coding indicates the exact interval of time when each letter is generated. Intervals from 500ms up to 5000 ms are successfully learned.
