A video image circulating in a loop with a local nonlinearity and a convolution operator can be considered as a high dimensional nonlinear dynamical system, or as a specific neural net. The evolving image displays spatiotemporal deterministic chaos, oscillations, and stable patterns. The specific behavior of the system is strongly determined by the coupling of pixels, i.e., by the synaptic pattern and by the nonlinearity. The system can be trained to display a certain given image as a fixed point. Thus, it is able to associatively restore perturbed input images, independently of a spatial shift.
