In this study, the synchronized response in the chaotic cellular neural network for a grayscale visual stimulus was investigated in the viewpoint of neural coding. Simple gradation patterns were used as visual stimuli and the synchronized response was analyzed by the correlation of the spike firing times. As a result, synchronized responses were observed for the neurons that had similar input values and formed chaotic cell assemblies. Each assembly was distinguished from the others in terms of cross-correlation.
