Having a low number of parameters and being composed of only polynomial differential equations, the model is able nonetheless to reproduce key features of LTP and LTD. Moreover, since the parameters of the model are easily related to the dynamical properties of the synapse, we believe the model constitutes a useful tool to study extended neural networks from a dynamical system's point of view.
