Abstract. We propose to use electrically coupled MEMS oscillators to build an oscillatory neurocomputer having autocorrelative associative memory. The neurocomputer stores and retrieves complex oscillatory patterns in the form of synchronized states with appropriate phase relations between the oscillators.
