In past studies on the neural transfer function, some researchers have taken both excitation and inhibition factors into consideration. However, these past models were based on the diffusion of substances between neighboring cells. Therefore, they are not suitable for considering excitation and inhibition factors in individual cells. In the present study, based on the physiological characteristics of synaptic transmission, we propose a new model in which facilitation and fatigue can be both considered in individual cells. Using the proposed model, the simulations of short-term memory, afterimage effect, motion aftereffect, Game of Life, and image feature detections were performed. We suggest that the proposed model is a valid and widely applicable neural model.
