Small groups of interneurons, abbreviated by CPG for central pattern generators, are arranged into neural networks to generate a variety of core bursting rhythms with specific phase-locked states, on distinct time scales, which govern vital motor behaviors in invertebrates such as chewing and swimming. These movements in lower level animals mimic motions of(More)
We compare multistability in central pattern generator (CPG) motifs comprised either of biologically plausible Hodgkin-Huxley models of bursting leech heart interneurons or of phenomenologically reduced phase models. We propose a novel computational tool for detailed examination of polyrhyth-mic bursting in biophysical CPG models with coupling asymmetries(More)
