Deep neural networks inspired by the connections among biological neurons have been highly effective in the advancement of computer vision. Recent research into recurrent neural networks has taken account of forward as well as recurrent connections in a neural network architecture. In this study, we proposed a model that mirrors the architecture of the human ventral pathway with separate layers representing brain regions connected using long-range recurrent links. CIFAR-10/100 datasets were used to assess the performance of object recognition using the proposed model and the results were compared with those obtained using state-of-the-art methods. We demonstrated that the classification accuracy increased as the number of recurrences increased. Our results suggest that the proposed neuroscience-inspired model can facilitate object recognition in computer vision and may help to elucidate neurological mechanisms in the human brain.
