Long-term synaptic plasticity underlies many important learning processes in the brain. Recent physiological data have shown that the precise relative timings of preand post-synaptic neuron firings at a synapse determine both the direction of certain types of modification (potentiation or depression), and magnitude of this modification. We propose a neurophysiological mechanism by which this spike-timedependent plasticity (STDP) could arise, and support this hypothesis using a model involving… CONTINUE READING
