Models of Neural Plasticity

Our work on basing models of neural plasticity on cellular principles continues to advance. With the help of Michael Wheeldon, B.Sc., as the current recipient of a research scholarship we anticipate two publications at the beginning of the new year. One publication will focus on outlining a new type of memory model using both horizontal (neuron-to-neuron) as well as vertical (neuron-internal) interactions. The other publications will go into considerable detail with respect to the underlying biology. In the end it seems surprising that LTP/LTD or a synaptic model for memory was ever adopted.
