Neurons in the nervous system display a wide variety of plasticity processes. Among them are covariance-based rules and homeostatic plasticity. By themselves, the first ones tend to generate instabilities because of the unbounded potentiation of synapses. The second ones tend to stabilize the system by setting a target for the postsynaptic firing rate. In… CONTINUE READING
