Panayiota Poirazi on the reality and function of dendritic spikes

0:00 Intro (presentations, and what’s a dendrite anyway ?)
6:39 Types of nonlinear responses in dendrites of Pyramidal Cells
14:00 Supralinear responses (when in same branch) predicted by in silico model of PC, verified experimentally
17:26 Supralinear and sublinear responses predicted by in silico model of interneuron
20:08 Simple dual layer model of a neuron to account for this (non HTM)
27:03 It costs less energy for a network to be that way
31:05 A new (2020) kind of dendritic spike supporting XOR ?
39:19 End goals and conclusion
