In pulse-based neural networks, synaptic dynamics can have direct influence on learning of neural codes, and encoding of spatiotemporal spike patterns. In this paper, we propose an adaptive synapse circuit for increased flexibility and efficacy of signal processing units in neuromorphic structures. The synapse acts as a multi-layer computational network, and includes multi-compartment dendrites and different types of post-synaptic back propagating signals. With built-in temporal control mechanisms, the resulting reconfigurable network allows the implementation of synaptic homeostatics.
