The proposed model explains recent behavioural results where obstructing astrocytes leads to deficiencies in learning new knowledge without affecting ability to recall existing knowledge. The model is also a novel Bayesian brain theory which uniquely addresses the cellular and synaptic levels. Keywords: Glia 1 · Astrocytes · Bayesian brain · Neural networks Introduction An article published this year in Nature Neuroscience [1] describes a recent 3rd wave in the debate about information processing by astrocytes, the principal type of glia in the cortex.

Based on likelihood derived from propagating new data through a neural network, the astrocyte learns an empirical prior distribution over synapses in its micro-domain for the functional interpretation of that likelihood/neural network. 2. The synapses of a neural network are continually sampled from the prior distribution and thus continually fluctuate. This implies a level of constant noise in the neural network. There may be a link between the near-Poisson nature of experimentally known neural noise [37] and the Poisson model of waves breaking thresholds at particular points in their domains [38].
