Biophysical model of synaptic plasticity dynamics
Abstract.We discuss a biophysical model of synaptic plasticity that provides a unified view of the outcomes of synaptic modification protocols, including: (1) prescribed time courses of postsynapticExpand

Inhibition and recurrent excitation in a computational model of sparse bursting in song nucleus HVC.
The telencephalic premotor nucleus HVC is situated at a critical point in the pattern-generating premotor circuitry of oscine songbirds. A striking feature of HVC's premotor activity is that itsExpand

Brain stem feedback in a computational model of birdsong sequencing.
Uncovering the roles of neural feedback in the brain is an active area of experimental research. In songbirds, the telencephalic premotor nucleus HVC receives neural feedback from both forebrain andExpand

Mapping neural architectures onto acoustic features of birdsong.
The motor pathway responsible for the complex vocalizations of songbirds has been extensively characterized, both in terms of intrinsic and synaptic physiology in vitro and in terms of theExpand

Dynamical model of birdsong maintenance and control.
The neuroethology of song learning, production, and maintenance in songbirds presents interesting similarities to human speech. We have developed a biophysical model of the manner in which song couldExpand

Spike timing and synaptic plasticity in the premotor pathway of birdsong
The neural circuits of birdsong appear to utilize specific time delays in their operation. In particular, the anterior forebrain pathway (AFP) is implicated in an approximately 40- to 50- ms timeExpand
