Fast neuronal oscillations (gamma, 20–80 Hz) have been observed in the neocortex and hippocampus during behavioral arousal. Using computer simulations, we investigated the hypothesis that such rhythmic activity can emerge in a random network of interconnected GABAergic fast-spiking interneurons. Specific conditions for the population synchronization, on properties of single cells and the circuit, were identified. These include the following: (1) that the amplitude of spike… 
Robust gamma oscillations in networks of inhibitory hippocampal interneurons
TLDR
Stochastic weak synchronization (SWS) is found to be much more robust than strong synchronization (i.e. when neurons spike at each period) and in the gamma-frequency range (20-80 Hz) for a stronger synaptic coupling compared with previous models and for networks with 10-1000 neurons.

TLDR
An interneuron network model based on experimentally determined properties was able to generate oscillatory activity with higher coherence over a broad range of frequencies (20–110 Hz), and high coherence and flexibility in frequency control emerge from the combination of synaptic properties, network structure, and electrical coupling.
Interneuronal gamma oscillations in hippocampus via adaptive exponential integrate-and-fire neurons
TLDR
This work investigates inhibitory network synchrony with a low complexity, two-variable adaptive exponential integrate-and-fire (AdEx) model, whose parameters possess strong physiological relevances, and provides a comparison with the two- variable Izhikevich model and Morris–Lecar model.
Fast Network Oscillations in the Newborn Rat HippocampusIn Vitro
TLDR
A novel type of a fast network oscillation associated with millisecond synchronization of pyramidal cell firing in newborn rat hippocampus in vitro is described and may be a mechanism for selective coincidence detection with a millisecond range temporal precision to shape the patterns of connectivity within the emerging hippocampal synaptic circuitry.

TLDR
Results indicate that interactions between excitation and inhibition are critical for the modulation of coherence and oscillation frequency of network activities.
Sparse Gamma Rhythms Arising through Clustering in Adapting Neuronal Networks
TLDR
Several testable predictions are developed regarding the formation and characteristics of gamma rhythms with sparsely firing excitatory neurons and the relationship between the number of clusters arising spontaneously in the network as it relates to the adaptation time constant.

Hippocampal Theta Modulation of Neocortical Spike Times and Gamma Rhythm: A Biophysical Model Study
TLDR
It is found that networks of fast-spiking GABA -ergic interneurons, coupled with shunting inhibition, synchronize their spike activity at a gamma frequency and are able to impose this rhythm on a network of pyramidal cells to which they are coupled.
STDP induced synchrony in inhibitory neural networks: theory and experiments
TLDR
Theoretical analysis revealed that STDP induced 1:1 synchrony in the UCI network is robust against a large range of heterogeneity in the intrinsic firing activity of coupled neurons, and the time to in-phase synchronization increases with increasing heterogeneity.
Synchronization in networks of noisy interneurons
TLDR
This work considers the stability of this type of gamma oscillations against synaptic noise and the spatio-temporal coherence of a set of interneurons with specific spatial connectivity properties, and calculates measures that characterize the network’s temporal coherence as well as its spatial synchronization.

The hyperpolarization-activated cation current (Ih) is found to provide a cellular basis for the intermittency of rebound bursting that is commonly observed in TC neurons during spindles.
Synchrony in Excitatory Neural Networks
TLDR
It is shown that excitation is generally desynchronizing for neurons with a response of type I but can be synchronizing for responses of type II when the synaptic interactions are fast, and even beyond the weak coupling regime.
Analysis of gamma rhythms in the rat hippocampus in vitro and in vivo.
TLDR
The data suggest that gamma‐frequency EEG activity arises in the hippocampus when pools of interneurones receive a tonic or slowly varying excitation, and on the parameters regulating the inhibitory coupling between the interneeurones.

TLDR
It is suggested that if GABAB receptors exist postsynaptically in the reticularis, they may play a critical role in the rhythmic synchronization among reticular neurons, hence in the thalamocortical system.

The interaction between inhibitory interneurons and cortical pyramidal neurons was studied by use of computer simulations to test whether inhibitoryinters could assist in phase-locking postsynaptic cells and frequency entrainment was examined.

Hippocampal basket cells have been identified as one source of fast, GABAA receptor‐evoked perisomatic inhibition, thus providing an effective mechanism to avoid total transmission failures.
Gamma (40-100 Hz) oscillation in the hippocampus of the behaving rat
TLDR
It is suggested that gamma oscillation emerges from an interaction between intrinsic oscillatory properties of interneurons and the network properties of the dentate gyrus and that Gamma oscillation in the CA3-CA1 circuitry is suppressed by either the hilar region or the entorhinal cortex.
