Synchronization in networks of excitatory and inhibitory neurons with sparse, random connectivity.

Börgers, Christoph.

Kopell, Nancy.


  • In model networks of E-cells and I-cells (excitatory and inhibitory neurons, respectively), synchronous rhythmic spiking often comes about from the interplay between the two cell groups: The E-cells synchronize the I-cells and vice versa. Under ideal conditions - Homogeneity in relevant network parameters and all-to-all connectivity, for instance - This mechanism can yield perfect synchronization. ... read more
