Question: What is the neural basis of the matching law? 12 It is generally believed that learning is due to changes in the efficacy of synapses 0.4 m 13 Kennedy, Science, 2000 Question:

What is the neural basis of the matching law? Question: What microscopic plasticity rules underlie adaptation to matching behavior? 14 Question: What is the neural basis of the matching law? Hypothesis: the matching law results from synaptic plasticity that is driven by the covariance of reward and neural activity 15

Question: What is the neural basis of the matching law? Hypothesis: the matching law results from synaptic plasticity that is driven by the covariance of reward and neural activity 16 Covariance is a measure of dependence two random variables X, Y X X E[ X ] Y Y E[Y ] covariance:
