We review some recent results on the behaviour of the integrate-and-fire (IF) model, the FitzHugh-Nagumo (FHN) model, a simplified version of the FHN (IF-FHN) model and the Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) model with correlated inputs. The effect of inhibitory inputs on the model behaviour is also taken into account. Here, inputs exclusively take the form of diffusion approximation and correlated inputs mean correlated synaptic inputs (Sections 2 and 3). It is found that the IF and HH models respond to… CONTINUE READING
