Abstract: The inclusion of a macroscopic adaptive threshold is studied for the retrieval dynamics of layered feedforward neural network models with synaptic noise. It is shown that if the threshold is chosen appropriately as a function of the cross-talk noise and of the activity of the stored patterns, adapting itself automatically in the course of the recall process, an autonomous functioning of the network is guaranteed. This self-control mechanism considerably improves the quality of retrieval, in particular the storage capacity, the basins of attraction and the mutual information content.
