Abstract The mammalian hippocampus has often been compared to neural networks of associative memory. Previous investigation of associative memory in the brain using associative neural networks have lacked biological complexity. Using a network of biologically plausible spiking neurons we examine associative memory function against results for a simple artificial neural net. We investigate implementations of methods for improving recall under biologically realistic conditions.
