    abstract = {This paper explores the combination of self-organizing map ({SOM}) and feedback, in order to represent sequences of inputs. In general, neural networks with time-delayed feedback represent time implicitly, by combining current inputs and past activities. It has been difficult to apply this approach to {SOM}, because feedback generates instability during learning. We demonstrate a solution to this problem, based on a nonlinearity. The result is a generalization of {SOM} that learns to represent sequences recursively. We demonstrate that the resulting representations are adapted to the temporal statistics of the input series.},
