(Steriade) Review: Simple Hebb rule for synaptic learning Simultaneous pre-synaptic and post-synaptic activities lead to strengthened synapse. j Xj i Xi Wij ΔWij = k Xi Xj where Xj and Xi are presynaptic and postsynaptic activities, respectively, and k > 0 is learning rate. Hebbian learning a Hopfield network The weight matrix is a correlation matrix of the inputs: T W = s1s1 + s 2s T + + s ms T 2 m where the memory patterns are orthogonal to one another: ⎧ N if i = j ⎪ s s =⎨ ⎪ 0 if i ≠ j ⎩ where N is the number of units in the network. Then Ws i = Ns i T ij Each memory pattern is an eigenvector of the weight matrix.
