Based on neurophysiological observations of the behavior of synapses, Spike Time Dependent Hebbian Plasticity is a novel extension to the modeling of the Hebb Rule . This rule has enormous importance in the learning of Spiking Neural Networks (SNN) but its mechanisms and computational properties are still to be explored. In this article, we present a generative model for Spike Time Dependent Plasticity based on a simplified model of the synaptic kinetic. We then explore the fitting of this model to experimental data and review some of it’s dynamical properties. Finally we extend this model to a simplified model of Integrate and Fire (IF) neurons network using Rank Order Coding.
