    Abstract

    We applied a training protocol to cultured cortical networks, adapted from Shahaf and Marom [1]. Like they did, on average we found an improved response to input stimuli. However, not all experiments were successful, and the shapes of our learning curves differed from theirs. Furthermore, we investi-gated connectivity changes in the whole network. We concluded that not only a selected connection could be altered, but that connectivity in the rest of the networks also changed. Connectivity changes may go undetected if general parameters like network wide firing rate are used to analyze connectivity.
