Bifurcations of periodic solutions in a model of weakly coupled two Bonhoeffer-van der Pol equations are studied. The model realizes a half-center model with reciprocal inhibition, a typical model used in the field of neural motor control to account for the generation of alternating rhythmic bursts observed in motoneurons and spinal neural networks. Several oscillatory solutions such as in-phase, anti-phase as well as out-of-phase solutions emerge from the model's equilibrium as one of the… CONTINUE READING
