Nonlinear interactions in the dendritic tree play a key role in neural computation. Nevertheless, modeling frameworks aimed at the construction of large-scale, functional spiking neural networks tend to assume linear, current-based superposition of post-synaptic currents. We extend the theory underlying the Neural Engineering Framework to systematically exploit nonlinear interactions between the local membrane potential and conductance-based synaptic channels as a computational resource.
