The work describes a model of how transient calcium and dopamine inputs might affect phosphorylation of DARPP-32 in the medium spiny neurons in the striatum. The model is relevant for understanding both the "three-factor rule" for synaptic plasticity in corticostriatal synapses, and also for relating reinforcement learning theories to biology.
