We consider a network of leaky integrate and fire neurons, whose learning mechanism is based on the Spike-Timing-Dependent Plasticity.

The temporal patterns stored in the network are periodic spatiotemporal patterns of spikes. We observe that, even in absence of a cue stimulation, the spontaneous dynamics induced by the noise is a sort of intermittent replay of the patterns stored in the connectivity and a phase transition between a replay and non-replay regime exists at a critical value of the spiking threshold.

Abstract

We consider a network of leaky integrate and fire neurons, whose learning mechanism is based on the Spike-Timing-Dependent Plasticity. The spontaneous temporal dynamic of the system is studied, including its storage and replay properties, when a Poissonian noise is added to the post-synaptic potential of the units. The temporal patterns stored in the network are periodic spatiotemporal patterns of spikes. We observe that, even in absence of a cue stimulation, the spontaneous dynamics induced by the noise is a sort of intermittent replay of the patterns stored in the connectivity and a phase transition between a replay and non-replay regime exists at a critical value of the spiking threshold. We characterize this transition by measuring the order parameter and its fluctuations.
