The purpose of this work is to study the Hopfield model for neuronal interaction and memory storage, in particular the convergence to the stored patterns. Since the hypothesis of symmetric synapses is not true for the brain, we will study how we can extend it to the case of asymmetric synapses using a probabilistic approach. We then focus on the description of another feature of the memory process and brain: oscillations. Using the Kuramoto model we will be able to describe them completely, gaining the presence of synchronization between neurons. Our aim is therefore to understand how and why neurons can be seen as oscillators and to establish a strong link between this model and the Hopfield approach.
