Fixed point attractor (Hasselmo et al 1995)

"... In the model, cholinergic suppression of synaptic transmission at excitatory feedback synapses is shown to determine the extent to which activity depends upon new features of the afferent input versus components of previously stored representations. ..." See paper for more and details. The MATLAB script demonstrates the model of fixed point attractors mediated by excitatory feedback with subtractive inhibition in a continuous firing rate model.
