Title: SHORT-TERM SYNAPTIC MEMORY BASED ON A PRESYNAPTIC SPIKE
Abstract:
A method for creating and maintaining short term memory using short term plasticity, includes changing a gain of a synapse based on presynaptic spike activity without regard to postsynaptic spike activity. The method also includes calculating the gain based on a continuously updated synaptic state variable associated with the short term plasticity.
