A computer simulation of recurrent, excitatory networks of sensory neurons of the gut in guinea-pig.

Intrinsic sensory neurons of the intestine are connected together to form a recurrent network. They interact by slow excitatory post synaptic potentials (EPSPs), which have a complex dependence on the pattern of input. These networks are unstable and unable to give graded responses to sensory input without some form of inhibition, but inhibitory synaptic… (More)
