Associative learning of temporally disparate events is of fundamental importance for perceptual and cognitive functions. Previous studies of the neural mechanisms of such association have been mainly focused on individual neurons or synapses, often with an assumption that there is persistent neural firing activity that decays slowly. However, experimental evidence supporting such firing activity for associative learning is still inconclusive. Here we present a novel, alternative account of… CONTINUE READING
