The paper presents a new approach to the interpretation
of chaotic neural activity. It is suggested that such activity
forms neural objects represented as spatio-temporal
firing patterns and the neural computations are
performed through the interaction of such neural objects.
To introduce the concepts of the proposed interpretation
the so-called Sierpinski brain is described. This model
brain is composed of simple neural networks, which
produce Sierpinski triangles as their chaotic spatio-
temporal firing pattern. It is shown how such Sierpinski
triangles can be used to perform general approximation,
prediction and classification tasks. This paper discusses
