Relating STDP to BCM

Neural Comput. 2003 Jul;15(7):1511-23. doi: 10.1162/089976603321891783.


We demonstrate that the BCM learning rule follows directly from STDP when pre- and postsynaptic neurons fire uncorrelated or weakly correlated Poisson spike trains, and only nearest-neighbor spike interactions are taken into account.
