Humans effortlessly interpret speech and music, whose patterns can contain sound durations up to thousands of milliseconds. How nervous systems measure such long durations is unclear. We show here that model neurons containing physiological slow conductances are 'naturally' sensitive to duration, replicate known duration-sensitive neurons and can be 'tuned' to respond to a wide range of specific durations. In addition, these models reproduce several other properties of duration-sensitive… CONTINUE READING
