Spike Timing-Dependent Plasticity (STDP)

Difficulty level

This lesson describes spike timing-dependent plasticity (STDP), a biological process that adjusts the strength of connections between neurons in the brain, and how one can implement or mimic this process in a computational model. You will also find links for practical exercises at the bottom of this page. 

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Experimental measurement
  • Modelling STDP
  • What can STDP "learn"?
