Learning the shape of synaptic plasticity rules for neuronal architectures and function through machine learning.

Project description

Machine learning discovers the rules governing the neural substrates of real learning

Models are used in virtually all fields from aerospace design to drug development. They are developed with observational or experimental data and refined through additional data and high-tech methods including machine learning. The better they get at predicting real-life and new outcomes, the more valuable they are in so many ways. Modelling the rules governing the changing 'weights' of synaptic connection between neurons (synaptic plasticity) that underlies learning and memory is an extremely challenging task. The EU-funded SynapSeek project will bring together a wealth of published data with advanced machine learning methods to 'discover' synaptic plasticity rules in silico.
