A review of recent results on the performance of a string of n Hopfield subnetworks interconnected by means of strong unidirectional low density connections is presented. Such networks store p random unbiased patterns {ξ i u , composed by n subpatterns, each of them to be recalled sequentially, by one of the subnetworks.
