The phasing of neuronal activity in a rhythmic motor network is determined by a neuron's intrinsic firing properties and synaptic inputs; these could vary in their relative importance under different modulatory conditions. In the lobster pyloric network, the firing of eight follower pyloric (PY) neurons is shaped by their intrinsic rebound after pacemaker inhibition and by synaptic input from the lateral pyloric (LP) neuron, which inhibits all PY neurons and is electrically coupled to a subset… CONTINUE READING
