This paper describes computer simulations of the behavior of Hodgkin-Huxley neurons, based on a redefinition of membrane and synaptic connections as time-invariant circuit elements. Examples are given showing that this self-consistent equivalent circuit representation allows very efficient computer simulations and could facilitate the introduction of… (More)
The in vitro culture of neuronal cells is a useful tool for studying, in a controlled way, neurobiological and neuropharmacological phenomena. A first step towards the understanding of these phenomena is described. Effects of simulated excitatory/inhibitory synapses, artificially positioned along the digitized image of neural arborizations, are presented.
