An example of pattern creation. Panel B is a summary table of the output data generated by the Patterns extension. The leftmost part of this table contains patterns generated throughout the experiment, whereas the "Count" column represents the number of simulations whose output nodes resulted in the particular pattern, as described in the main text (for easier exemplification, only patterns that occurred more than 100 times are listed in the table). The next two sections of this table contain the average input and average output vectors, respectively. Panel A illustrates the process of creating average input vectors of the top three patterns; that is, for each pattern, the average of external-input dosages of all simulations that were assigned to the particular pattern is calculated. Similarly, the average output vectors are calculated by averaging the output node activity levels across simulations that led to a given pattern. As shown in Panel C, the top three average output vectors (and patterns) were calculated from 2,346, 1,488, and 952 simulations, respectively.
