Any realistic model of the neuronal pathway from the retina to the visual cortex (V1) must account for the bursting behavior of neurons in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). A robust but minimal model, the integrate-and-fire-or-burst (IFB) model, has recently been proposed for individual LGN neurons. Based on this, we derive a dynamic population model(More)
We study the longitudinal instabilities of two interpenetrating fluids interacting only through gravity. When one of the constituents is of relatively low density, it is possible to have a band of unstable wavenumbers well separated from those involved in the usual Jeans instability. If the initial streaming is large enough, and there is no linear(More)
