The subject presents mathematical models of physiological neural networks and their optimization using evaluated and target values. Problems of global and local optima are presented on the error surface together with the least square method and gradient method for evaluation of optimal structure and network coefficients. Application include signal denoising, prediction and classification with the use in engineering and biomedicine.
