BioModels is a repository of mathematical models of biological and biomedical systems. It hosts a vast selection of existing literature-based physiologically and pharmaceutically relevant mechanistic models in standard formats. Our mission is to provide the systems modelling community with reproducible, high-quality, freely-accessible models published in the scientific literature. More information about BioModels can be found in the FAQ.

Model of the month

November, 2019

One aspect of reinforcement learning is the reward prediction error (RPE), characterised neurophysiologically by transient changes in neuromodulators such as dopamine, acetylcholine and adenosine that act upon receptors expressed by medium spiny neurons. Extracellular binding of these neuromodulators is transduced intracellularly by GPCRs and converge on the adenylyl cyclase/cAMP/PKA pathway, with PKA activation in MSNs being crucial for long-term plasticity and learning. This model studies how interactions between the different neuromodulators can mediate signal filtering, PKA activation, and the production of RPEs essential for reinforcement learning.
