  • We prove the existence of a phase transition for a stochastic model of interacting neurons. The spiking activity of each neuron is represented by a point process having rate 1 whenever its membrane potential is larger than a threshold value. This membrane potential evolves in time and integrates the spikes of all presynaptic neurons since the last spiking time of the neuron. When a neuron spikes, its membrane potential is reset to 0 and simultaneously, a constant value is added to the membrane… CONTINUE READING
