Using a realistic model of activity dependent dynamical synapse, which includes both depressing and facilitating mechanisms, we study the conditions in which a postsynaptic neuron efficiently detects temporal coincidences of spikes which arrive from N different presynaptic neurons at certain frequency f. A numerical and analytical treatment of that system… CONTINUE READING
