Contents Introduction -- Single Cell Theory -- Stability of BCM with a Weight Decay Term. in a Linearly Independent Environment -- Objective Function Formulation -- Convergence of the Solution of the Random Differential Equations -- Analysis and Comparison of BCM and Kurtosis in Extended Distributions -- Statistical Theorems -- Cortical Network Theory -- Asymptotic Behavior of Mean Field Equations with Time Dependent Mean Field -- Review and Analysis of Second Order Learning Rules -- Representing the correlation matrix in a Bessel function Base -- Properties of Correlation Functions And How to Make Good Ones -- The Parity Transform: Symmetry properties of the eigenstates of the two eye problem -- Receptive field selectivity in a natural image environment -- Technical Remarks Concerning Simulations of Selectivity -- Ocular dominance in normal and deprived cortex -- Networks of interacting BCM Neurons -- Experimental evidence for the assumptions and consequences of the BCM theory.
Summary In Theory of Cortical Plasticity, Nobel Laureate LeonCooper and his collaborators present a systematic development of theBienenstock, Cooper and Munro (BCM) theory of synaptic plasticity, anddiscuss experiments that test both its assumptions and consequences. This insightful book provides an elegant analysis of theoreticalstructure in neuroscience research, and elucidates the role BCM theoryhas played in guiding research leading to our present understanding ofthe mechanisms underlying cortical plasticity.
