Spatial structure from diffusive synaptic plasticity (Sweeney and Clopath, 2016)

In this paper we propose a new form of Hebbian synaptic plasticity which is mediated by a diffusive neurotransmitter. The effects of this diffusive plasticity are implemented in networks of rate-based neurons, and lead to the emergence of spatial structure in the synaptic connectivity of the network.

Transmitters: NO

Model Concept(s): Hebbian plasticity; Long-term Synaptic Plasticity; Volume transmission

Simulation Environment: Python

Implementer(s): Sweeney, Yann [yann.sweeney at]
