Comparison of learning methods for spiking neural networks

  • K. KukinEmail author
  • A. Sboev


Investigation of different factor influence on the spike-timing-dependent plasticity learning process was performed. The next factors were analyzed: choice of spike pairing scheme, shapes of postsynaptic currents and the choice of input type signal for learning. Best factors for learning performance were extracted.
