Neurons that fire high-frequency bursts of spikes are found in various sensory systems. Although the functional implications of burst firing might differ from system to system, bursts are often thought to represent a distinct mode of neuronal signalling. The firing of bursts in response to sensory input relies on intrinsic cellular mechanisms that work with… CONTINUE READING
