Runaway Activity Generated by Mutual Excitation Among Neurons

Rosebrock, Daniel T.

Neurons in the brain excite each other. Why does this not lead to a chain reaction, with faster firing generating yet faster firing, and so fourth -- or does it, sometimes? We study this question first for a single integrate-and-fire neuron with synaptic self-excitation and self-inhibition, in essence modelling recurrent synaptic connections in a network. Even for this simple model, w... read more
