A biophysical model of spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP) is one which converts time intervals, in a given firing pattern of synaptically coupled pre- and postsynaptic neurons, to modifications of the connecting synapse. This class of STDP model is defined by their mathematical representation of specific biophysical quantities, which have been shown to play a role in the intracellular mechanisms underlying synaptic plasticity.
