Ude Lu, a member of Cozen O'Connor's Intellectual Property Department, discusses this topic in Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. eurons receive pre-synaptic spike trains and transform them into post-synaptic spike trains. This spike train to spike train temporal transformation underlies all cognitive functions performed by neurons, e.g., learning and memory. The transformation is a highly nonlinear dynamical process that involves both pre- and post-synaptic mechanisms. The ability to separate and quantify the nonlinear dynamics of pre- and post-synaptic mechanism is needed to gain insights into this transformation.
