    • Astrocytes: Orchestrating synaptic plasticity? 

      De Pittà, M; Brunel, N; Volterra, A (Neuroscience, 2016-05)
      Synaptic plasticity is the capacity of a preexisting connection between two neurons to change in strength as a function of neural activity. Because synaptic plasticity is the major candidate mechanism for learning and memory, ...
    • Emergence of Irregular Activity in Networks of Strongly Coupled Conductance-Based Neurons 

      Sanzeni, A; Histed, MH; Brunel, N (Physical Review X, 2022-03-01)
      Cortical neurons are characterized by irregular firing and a broad distribution of rates. The balanced state model explains these observations with a cancellation of mean excitatory and inhibitory currents, which ...
