The structure of synaptic connectivity plays an important role in information processing and dynamics of neuronal microcircuits. Previous work has shown that cortical microcircuits contain non-random features of the network structure [1], and that these affect neuronal dynamics [2]. Earlier models of non-random network structure proposed local correlations in synaptic weight or connection number (degree) [3, 4]. In such network models, there are neurons receiving stronger synaptic weights or… CONTINUE READING
