Nonspecific synaptic plasticity improves the recognition of sparse patterns degraded by local noise
Many forms of synaptic plasticity require the local production of volatile or rapidly diffusing substances such as nitric oxide. The nonspecific plasticity these neuromodulators may induce at neighboring non-active synapses ...
The application and limitations of mathematical modelling in the prediction of permeability across mammalian skin and polydimethylsiloxane membranes
Objectives: Predicting the rate of percutaneous absorption of a drug is an important issue with the increasing use of the skin as a means of moderating and controlling drug delivery. One key feature of this problem domain ...
STD-dependent and independent encoding of input irregularity as spike rate in a computational model of a cerebellar nucleus neuron
Neurons in the cerebellar nuclei (CN) receive inhibitory inputs from Purkinje cells in the cerebellar cortex and provide the major output from the cerebellum, but their computational function is not well understood. It has ...
