We found the zif expression site was initially localized to parietal cortex, and was associated with ictogenesis. Writing the corresponding differential equations results in our mean-field description. Decorrelated neuronal firing in cortical microcircuits. But how does the backpropagation work? Trial-to-trial variability and state-dependent modulation of auditory-evoked responses in cortex. Figure summarized results from many neurons, in both synaptically and directly evoked cases. An impulse traveling along the axon triggers new impulses in each of its branches, which in turn trigger impulses in their even finer branches.

Notice that in the non-resonant region the resonance frequency is not defined. Coding and Decoding with Adapting Neurons: A Population Approach to the Peri-Stimulus Time Histogram. The effect of network topology on the stability of discrete state models of genetic control. We see that the theory predicts the width of the power spectrum quite well for the first few iterations. D Same color code as in C. If an impulse is started at any one place on the axon, it propagates in both directions. When the neuron activates, it accumulates all its incoming inputs, and if it goes over a certain threshold it fires a signal thru the axon.

A new study shows that even small increases in spontaneous network firing can significantly affect the properties and dynamics of excitatory evoked response in sensory neocortex. A Unlike in synaptic mediated responses, direct response spike amplitudes and latencies are correlated. This is due to the fact that in this regime the correlation time of the single unit driven by white noise is dominated by the long tail of the autocorrelation. Therefore, the correspondence between the two models that we defined is consistent with the physiologically-meaningful requirement that the differences between the two synaptic models decrease with synaptic activity Destexhe et al. Axons come in two kinds: myelinated and unmyelinated.

Are synaptically evoked spikes, such as those demonstrated in Figures , elicited using the method described above, more similar to naturally evoked spikes? The so defined comparable networks displayed an excellent and robust match of first order statistics average single neuron firing rates and average frequency spectrum of network activity. The synaptic currents in panels Aâ€”C are divided by the leak membrane conductance to obtain units of mV. These modulations of gamma-range power resulted in moderate amounts of stimulus information in the same range, 40â€”70 Hz, Figure , and were likely due to the time taken by the networks to develop gamma oscillations following the very low input values occurring at the trough of the sinusoidal input. The device operates with low voltage spikes of 0. However, if the pulse is started at one end of the axon normally the axon hillock , it can travel only away from that end, since once a section has been triggered it becomes refractory until well after the impulse has passed out of range. Equivalent-accuracy accelerated neural-entwork training using analogue memory. The magnitude and direction of the update are determined by the error.

Nonetheless, the cooperative effect of many such subthreshold changes may yield a potential change at the axon hillock that exceeds threshold, and if this occurs at a time when the axon has passed the refractory period of its previous firing, then a new impulse will be fired down the axon. The second source of complexity arises from kinetics of ionic channels underlying excitability at the single neuron level; over extended time scales these kinetics are dominated by long-lasting states, giving rise to complex firing statistics and long-memory processes Toib et al. At each iteration, the linear step is simply a multiplication by and it allows us to compute S x n+ 1 f. This agreement is stable over a wide range of network parameters. The approach we follow instead is to enforce locality by using local gradients, or equivalently, local errors. F Average over trials amplitude of the fluctuations of the sum of the currents entering the excitatory neurons for the two networks as a function of the input rate.

B,C Input-Output curves display the response rate of the neuron calculated over the last 200 s of each stimulation epoch , plotted as a function of the stimulation rate. In the Results section, we first present the microscopic model for the network of rate neurons with adaptation and describe its dynamical regimes. Right accuracy for the first 3000 training samples. In summary, we discretized the responses into six equi-populated bins. The regimes we investigated displayed average firing rates relatively low 0. Stimulation amplitudes were delivered at 0.

. This is a general property that is also valid for more complex rate models. Interestingly, the two different cases in correspond to two different bifurcation types: for Î² Î² H Î³ the eigenvalue spectrum is deformed such that the eigenvalues with the largest real part are complex. Temporal whitening by power-law adaptation in neocortical neurons. The membrane on the endbulb is called the presynaptic membrane, and the membrane of the surface upon which the endbulb impinges is called the postsynaptic membrane. Our synaptic device demonstrates a close to linear weight update trajectory while providing a large number of stable conduction states with less than 1% variation per state. We see that while rate and latency dynamics exhibited in direct responses can be exclusively attributed to fluctuations of membrane excitability, interpretations are more subtle when neurons are stimulated synaptically, as both synaptic transmission and neuronal excitability might contribute to response variability.

We wanted to test how these two information channels, developed when presenting the network with time-varying stimuli, depended on the choice of the synaptic model. The power spectrum is averaged over trials. In the case where the voltage pulse was 0. Moreover, the number of effective conductance states did not significantly change despite the different light conditions 82â€”99 for case 1, 75â€”82 for case 2, and 74â€”82 for case 3 , where threshold Î” G was set to 0.
