Dr. Sebastian Seung
This session will be devoted to recent progress in studying the
activity-dependent synaptic transmission in neocortex. We will
start by introducing the phenomena of short-term synaptic
plasticity. Different types of short-term plasticity will be
described, as well as its relation to the types of neocortical
neurons connected by the synapses. We will then discuss the ways
of modeling the dynamic synaptic transmission on different levels
of complexity. Computational models of information transmission,
based on synaptic properties, will be introduced. We will also
discuss about the relation between short- and long-term synaptic
plasticity, and discuss spike-time dependent synaptic plasticity.
