Belief circuit.

Circuit for calculating the belief distribution over coincidence patterns by integrating the sequence of bottom-up inputs with the top-down inputs. The pentagon-shaped neurons are the belief neurons. These neurons pool over all the neurons representing the same coincidence in different Markov chains to calculate the belief value for each coincidence pattern. This circuit implements the Equation 6 in Table 1.
