Coherence detection in a spiking neuron via Hebbian learning

It is generally assumed that neurons in the central nervous system communicate through temporal firing patterns. As a first step, we will study the learning of a layer of realistic neurons in the particular case where the relevant messages are formed …

Visual Strategies for Sparse Spike Coding

Network of integrate-and-fire neurons using Rank Order Coding B: spike timing dependant plasticity and emergence of orientation selectivity

Rank Order Coding is an alternative to conventional rate coding schemes that uses the order in which a neuron's inputs fire to encode information. In a visual system framework, we simulated the asynchronous waves of retinal spikes produced in …
