The paper argues for competing roles of NR2A- and NR2B-containing NMDARs in spike-timing-dependent plasticity. This simple dynamical model recapitulates the results of STDP experiments involving selective blockers of NR2A- and NR2B-containing NMDARs, for which the stimuli are pre- and postsynaptic spikes in varying combinations. Experiments were done using paired recordings from glutamatergic neurons in rat hippocampal cultures. This model focuses on the dynamics of the putative potentiation and depression modules themselves, and their interaction For detailed dynamics involving NMDARs and Ca2+ transients, see Rubin et al., J. Neurophys., 2005.
