I will investigate the relationship between the connectivity structures and the dynamics in neural circuits, by considering the spike-time-dependent synaptic plasticity – which describes the change of synaptic strengths based on spike times and their correlations. By using both analytical and numerical tools, I will explore the interplay of synaptic plasticity, local connectivity structures (known as “motifs”) and dimensionality of neural activity.
