Using the Change Manager Model for the Hippocampal System to Predict Connectivity and Neurophysiological Parameters in the Perirhinal Cortex

Figure 9

Process for hippocampal system managed receptive field expansion at dendritic terminal branch level. (a) Regular cortical synapses on the branch have insufficient total weight to cause the branch to inject potential deeper into the dendrite; (b) activity of the hippocampal system input causes injection of dendritic potential; (c) if the neuron fires, a backpropagating action potential increases the weights of recently active cortical synapses; (d) the weight increases mean that the branch in the future can inject potential into the dendrite, independent of the hippocampal system input.
