This study investigates the control of spike-timing dependent plasticity (STDP) by regulation of the dendritic spike threshold of the postsynaptic neuron. The control of synaptic plasticity may be implemented in the electrosensory system of mormyrid electric fish by feedback control. Dendritic spikes constitute the timing signal of the STDP learning rule(More)
This study investigates the learning dynamics of cartwheel cells in the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN). Cartwheel cells are excited by parallel fibers that carry information from various sources, such as auditory stimuli, proprioception and recurrent inputs from higher-order auditory processing. Thus, these cells are thought to be involved in multimodal(More)
