Percentage of decoding success (A) and MSE (B) over time, in the coupled (blue) and uncoupled (red) networks, with varying time scales of temporal integration used in the decoding process. Figure 5—figure supplement 2. Effect of the number of modules and environment size. Percentage of decoding success (A,C,E,F,G) and MSE (B,D,H,I,J) as a function of time. (A-D) Varying number of modules (, , or ), in the coupled (A–B) and uncoupled (C–D) networks. The coupling prevents the occurrence of readout discontinuities in all of these cases. Increase in the number of modules reduces the rate of these discontinuities even in the absence of coupling (C–D). (E-J) Decoding in arena of dimensions 2.5 × 2.5 m2 (red), compared to the original arena (blue, 1.2 × 1.2 m2), without coupling and with different number of modules. The rate of readout discontinuities increases, and the MSE increases, in larger arenas.
