Accession:206249
Here, we present a simplified, biophysically inspired network model that incorporates multiple plasticity processes and explains linking of information at three different levels: (a) learning of a single associative memory (b) rescuing of a weak memory when paired with a strong one and (c) linking of multiple memories across time. By dissecting synaptic from intrinsic plasticity and neuron-wide from dendritically restricted protein capture, the model reveals a simple, unifying principle: Linked memories share synaptic clusters within the dendrites of overlapping populations of neurons

%GHOSTSCRIPT  Calls a local GhostScript executable with the input command
%
% Example:
%   [status result] = ghostscript(cmd)
%
% Attempts to locate a ghostscript executable, finally asking the user to
% specify the directory ghostcript was installed into. The resulting path
% is stored for future reference.
% 
% Once found, the executable is called with the input command string.
%
% This function requires that you have Ghostscript installed on your
% system. You can download this from: http://www.ghostscript.com
%
% IN:
%   cmd - Command string to be passed into ghostscript.
%
% OUT:
%   status - 0 iff command ran without problem.
%   result - Output from ghostscript.
