Stabilising Hebbian Learning with a Third Factor in a Food Retrieval Task

Abstract

When neurons fire together they wire together. This is Donald Hebb’s famous postulate. However, Hebbian learning is inherently unstable because synaptic weights will self amplify themselves: the more a synapse is able to drive a postsynaptic cell the more the synaptic weight will grow. We present a new biologically realistic way how to stabilise synaptic… (More)
