```Figure 3. First, a convolutional network
(convnet) is applied to the
nonoverlapping segmented topographical
data at each time step.
Note that the weights of the convnet
are shared when processing
each segment. Then the processed
data are fed into a recurrent network
for further computation. To
better explore the spatial information
of the topographies, convolution,
linear transformation plus nonlinear
activation, is used inside the
recurrent cell. Hence, the subnetwork,
that is, the recurrent
convnet, is known as the recurconvnet.
In detail, assuming at
time step t, the input to the recur-convnet is
the hidden state is h ,t
state is c ,t
The complexity of
the cognitive and
data-acquisition
processes brings
nonintuition into
the understanding
of EEG data, which
consequently hinders
interpretation of the
network outcome.

where w represents the weights of
different network circuits in (1)-(4).
After recurrence, only the feature
maps of the last step are considered.
GAP is then applied to these feature
maps to obtain the resulting weights
before the final classification. These
feature maps and weights are used
to construct the heatmaps, as in [17].
The detai led configuration of
the network structure is provided
in Table 1.

The complexity of the cognitive
and data-acquisition processes
br ings nonintuit ion into the
understanding of EEG data, which consequently hinders
interpretation of the network outcome. To explicitly
demonstrate the implicit attention capability of the network,
a natural dog-versus-cat image set [27]-compiled
for categorizing dogs and cats-is used to verify the
ROIs of the network when performing classification in
the first place. Because the designed network has a
recurrent part, for each dog or cat image, it repeats
seven times to form a sequential sample to resemble the
EEG topographical data. This means that the layouts of
the respective input data are identical between the two
