May I suggest you read these books:
John Milton; Dynamics of Small Neural Populations; American Mathematical
Wolfgang Maass and Christopher M. Bishop, Editors; Pulsed Neural Networks;
MIT Press, 1999, 2001
Miltons book is just a masterpiece. He demonstrates with real data that
biological NNs communicate via a chaotic communication protocol. Pulsed
Neural Networks builds on those ideas.

As always Robert, you are very entertaining. Have you read these books?
Vladimir N. Vapnik; The Nature of Statistical Learning Theory, Second
Edition; Springer-Verlag, 2000
Nello Cristianini, John Shawe-Taylor; An Introduction to Support Vector
Machines; Cambridge University Press, 2000
Ralf Herbrich; Learning Kernel Classifiers, Theory and Algorithms; MIT
Now, I am very busy and need to get back to work.
