A popular hypothesis in neuroscience, first suggested by Donald O. Hebb, is that one way of encoding information in the brain is by strengthening connections between a subpopulation of neurons. Such encoding has some attractive features and forms the basis of several models of memory in computational neuroscience. It has been shown in computational models that such cell assemblies can form on the timescale of hours. This raises the question of whether it can be done more quickly in a bioplausible model, at the timescale of learning (few hundred ms)? In this talk I will present ongoing work in our study of this question and propose a simple bioplausible model.
This is joint work with M. Kabic, J. Lengler and A. Steger.
