Published articles, texts, and complementary material about NAC are described below:

2012: The digital operation of neural assemblies, how coalitions can perform logic functions, memory, and also how they control branching and dismantling of other coalitions were discussed in the article “Neural Assembly Computing”, published by IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, volume: 23 , Issue: 6, Pages: 916 – 927.

2012: Complementary material, which allows you to perform simulations on NAC fundamentals (a Matlab© code), as well as a short tutorial are respectively available at:

2012: A synthesis of the NAC approach was presented in XXIII Brasilian Congress of Biomedical Engineering (XXIII Congresso Brasileiro de Engenharia Biomédica). The article (in portuguese) may be downloaded at:

2012: The NAC approach was developed as a doctoral thesis entitled: ‘Computing with neural assemblies in spiking neural networks’ (originally in Portuguese: ‘Computação por assembleias neurais em redes neurais pulsadas’), available at:

2011: Our first publication in the field was concerned with how neural assemblies can retain bistable information as they form bistable loops, operating in a flip-flop-like manner. This paper appears in:  Foundations of Computational Intelligence (FOCI), 2011 IEEE Symposium on.

There are many publications concerning neuronal cell assemblies. We are preparing a list of links to interesting articles and sites.  If you can contribute to improve such list, please contact us.
