artificial neural network provides a cybernetic model that is similar to human intelligence in terms of parallel processing, generalization and memory stacking on the same neural network. From the era of neurogenesis, research models expect the rules that govern new neuron to depend on old mature circuitry. Other research models show the existence of catastrophic interference associated with new neurons if species is exposed to variable information content environment. In this work, the model developed provides a theoretical framework for a novel attention sensitive neural network as well as an experimental framework revealing the addition of new neuron can be prevented from catastrophic interference phenomena if it undergoes certain structural processes in human brain. © 2008 IEEE.
