Fast reciprocal inhibition can synchronize bursting neurons.


We study a pair of endogenously bursting neurons with fast nondelayed inhibitory connections. We show that fast reciprocal inhibition, known to facilitate antiphase bursting, can stably synchronize bursting neurons. This contrasts with the classical view that reciprocal inhibition has to be slow or time delayed to establish in-phase synchronization. Through… (More)
