The mammalian hippocampus has often been compared to neural networks of associative memory [6]. 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 [5]. We investigate implementations of methods for improving recall under biologically realistic conditions.
