For simulations of large spiking neuron networks, an accurate, simple and versatile single-neuron modeling framework is required. Here we explore the versatility of a simple two-equation model: the adaptive exponential integrate-and-fire neuron. We show that this model generates multiple firing patterns depending on the choice of parameter values, and(More)
Decisions about noisy stimuli require evidence integration over time. Traditionally, evidence integration and decision making are described as a one-stage process: a decision is made when evidence for the presence of a stimulus crosses a threshold. Here, we show that one-stage models cannot explain psychophysical experiments on feature fusion, where two(More)

Navigation is defined as the capability of planning and performing a path from the current position towards a desired location. Different types, or strategies, of navigation are used by animals depending on the task they are trying to solve. Visible goals can be approached directly, while navigation to a hidden goal usually requires a memorized(More)
An adaptive Exponential Integrate-and-Fire (aEIF) model [1] was used to predict activity of cortical neurons. This model is a leaky Integrate-and-Fire which has in the voltage equation an additional exponential term [2] describing early activation of voltage-gated channels combined with a second variable introduced in the model to allow for subthreshold and(More)
