Memory simulation using spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP)
Spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP) is considered critical to learning and memory. However, specific roles of diverse STDP profiles in memory formation still remain elusive. My research shows that the symmetry of learning rate profile in STDP is crucial to determining memory type, namely long-term and short-term.
Network Properties & Network simulation
A neural network shows various computational function and activity feature, such as oscillation or synchrony, in different sub-region in brain. However the underlying mechanism of generating these function and feature are not yet clear. The main research interest is on configuring structural mechanism of various feature and function of network using computer simulation.
