  • Spike-timing dependent plasticity is a learning mechanism used extensively within neural modelling. The learning rule has previously been shown to allow a neuron to learn a repeated spatio-temporal pattern among its afferents and respond at its onset. In this study we reconfirm these previous results and additionally adduce that such learning is dependent on background activity. Furthermore, we found that the onset learning is unstable when in a noisy framework. Specifically, if the level of… CONTINUE READING
