Recent experimental results have accumulated evidence that the neurons can change their response characteristics to adapt to the variations of the synaptic inputs, which is the so-called neuronal intrinsic plasticity mechanism. In this paper, we present a new model on neuronal intrinsic plasticity. We first show that the probability distribution of the neuronal firing rates is more suitable to be represented as a Weibull distribution than an exponential distribution. Then, we derive the intrinsic plasticity model based on information theory. This study provides a more realistic model for further research on the effects of intrinsic plasticity on various brain functions and dynamics.
