In cortical neurons, synaptic “noise” is caused by the nearly random release of thousands of synapses. Few methods are presently available to analyze synaptic noise and deduce properties of the underlying synaptic inputs. We focus here on the power spectral density (PSD) of several models of synaptic noise. We examine different classes of analytically solvable kinetic models for synaptic currents, such as the “delta kinetic models,” which use Dirac delta functions to represent the activation of… CONTINUE READING
