A module with diagnostic abilities. The neural module receives the input of two vectors: one representing the set of possible diseases up to the moment and the other vector corresponding to a new sign, symptom or laboratory result. The action of the neurons that constitute the neural module can be divided into two sequential steps: the Kronecker product of these two entries and the association of this stimulus with an output activity pattern. This output vector is a linear combination of a narrower set of disease vectors that can be reinjected if a new clinical data arrives or can be processed to obtain the probability attributable to each diagnostic decision.
