— Information can be encoded in spiking neural network (SNN) by precise spike-time relations. This hypothesis can explain cell assembly formation, such as polychronous group (PNG), a notion created to explain how groups of neurons fire time-locked to each other, not necessarily synchronously. In this paper we present a set of PNGs capable of retaining(More)
Mediterranean watercourses are among the most threatened ecosystems worldwide, being increasingly important to understand environmental drivers of biotic assemblages. Our aim was to provide a comprehensive picture of bryophyte communities in Mediterranean rivers and to determine the environmental factors that influence their distribution. We used floristic(More)
Several types of neural plasticity must be perfectly orchestrated for a proper functioning of biological neural networks. In this work we present a computer simulation of the Alzheimer's Disease, taking into account one of the most accepted models of Alzheimer's Disease: the calcium dysregulation hypothesis. According to Cudmore and Turrigiano calcium(More)
