Our objectives are to quantify synaptic modification rules and to understand them in a context of simple neural networks capable of pattern recognition and clustering. The experimental work plus considerations of parsimony favors one particular form of the excitatory synaptic modification rule. Modification of the translation of synaptic activation into cell firing may well the governed by a separate rule. Although different than the first rule, simple computer models show these two rules are together compatible and noncontradictory.
