The sensitivity of a neuron to its input can be modulated in several ways. Changes in the slope of the neuronal input-output curve depend on factors such as shunting inhibition, background noise, frequency-dependent synaptic excitation, and balanced excitation and inhibition. However, in early development GABAergic interneurons are excitatory and other mechanisms such as asynchronous transmitter release might contribute to regulating neuronal sensitivity. We modeled both phasic and asynchronous… Expand
Tonically Balancing Intracortical Excitation and Inhibition by GABAergic Gliotransmission
TLDR
It is suggested that the GABAergic gliotransmission mechanism may provide balanced intracortical excitation and inhibition so that the best perceptual performance of the cortex can be achieved. Expand
Shaping Neuronal Network Activity by Presynaptic Mechanisms
TLDR
A novel neuronal network model is presented that incorporates presynaptic release mechanisms, such as vesicle pool dynamics and calcium-dependent release probability, to model the spontaneous activity of neuronal networks and generates spontaneous network activity patterns, which are similar to experimental data and robust under changes in the model's primary gain parameters.

Asynchronous GABA Release Is a Key Determinant of Tonic Inhibition and Controls Neuronal Excitability: A Study in the Synapsin II−/− Mouse
TLDR
A causal relationship between the dynamics of GABA release and the generation of tonic inhibition is demonstrated, and a novel mechanism of epileptogenesis generated by dysfunctions in the Dynamics of release that can be effectively targeted by novel antiepileptic strategies is identified. Expand
Statistical Computer Model Analysis of the Reciprocal and Recurrent Inhibitions of the Ia-EPSP in α-Motoneurons
TLDR
It is found that small on a few dendrite maintains the EPSP peak, its TI, and RR inhibition similar to the passive state, but high on many dendrites decrease the inhibition and sometimes generates even an excitatory effect. Expand
Time-coded neurotransmitter release at excitatory and inhibitory synapses
TLDR
This study is the first, to the authors' knowledge, proposing a multiple-time-scale model that bridges between the microscopic and mesoscopic scales and describes a model of the exocytotic cycle of vesicles at excitatory and inhibitory synapses that accounts for all modes of vese release as well as short-term synaptic plasticity (STSP).

A Developmental Switch for Hebbian Plasticity
TLDR
The results demonstrate that SVE has a permissive, whereas subsequent evoked vesicle exocytosis (EVE) has an instructive role in the expression of Hebbian plasticity, and this developmental switch in neurotransmitter release mode enables maturation of spike-timing dependent plasticity. Expand
Downregulation of Parvalbumin at Cortical GABA Synapses Reduces Network Gamma Oscillatory Activity
TLDR
A biophysically realistic and detailed computational model of a cortical circuit including asynchronous release from GABAergic interneurons is developed to investigate how reductions in PV and GABA affect gamma oscillations induced by sensory stimuli, and suggests a mechanism by which reduced GAD67 and PV in fast-spiking interneeurons may contribute to cortical dysfunction in schizophrenia and related psychiatric disorders.

Investigation into functional large-scale networks in individuals with schizophrenia using fMRI data and Dynamic Causal Modelling
Introduction Dynamic Causal Modelling is an established method for the computation of synaptic plasticity from fMRI data (Stephan et al., 2006, 2009a). Bilinear DCM provides for the inference ofExpand
The ripple pond: enabling spiking networks to see
TLDR
Key aspects in the proposed approach include utilizing the spatial properties of physically embedded neural networks and propagating waves of activity therein for information processing, using dimensional collapse of imagery information into amenable TP and the use of asynchronous frames for information binding.

Verbal working memory and functional large-scale networks in schizophrenia
TLDR
The DCM analyses revealed that SZ and HC used different bilinear networks despite comparable behavioral performance, which indicated neurobiological alterations underlying working memory performance, including different connection strengths with nonlinear modulation between the DLPFC and the VTA/SN area.

Shunting Inhibition Modulates Neuronal Gain during Synaptic Excitation
TLDR
It is shown that tonic inhibition reduces the gain and shifts the offset of cerebellar granule cell input-output relationships during frequency-dependent excitation with synaptic conductance waveforms, suggesting that shunting inhibition can multiplicatively scale rate-coded information in neurons with high-variability synaptic inputs.

TLDR
It is shown that divisive modulation of firing rate by shunting inhibition requires synaptic noise to smooth the relation between firing rate and somatic depolarization, and its modulatory effects are fully explained only when both synaptic noise and dendritic saturation are taken into account. Expand
Neuronal Integration of Synaptic Input in the Fluctuation-Driven Regime
TLDR
It is shown that with a simultaneous increase of excitation and inhibition, the firing rate first increases, reaches a maximum, and then decreases at higher input rates, in contrast to coding mechanisms postulated previously. Expand
Nonlinear Interaction between Shunting and Adaptation Controls a Switch between Integration and Coincidence Detection in Pyramidal Neurons
TLDR
The results suggest that the shift from a low to high conductance state in a pyramidal neuron is accompanied by a switch from encoding time-averaged input with firing rate to encoding transient inputs with precisely timed spikes, in effect, switching the operational mode from integration to coincidence detection. Expand
Inhibitory Transmission Mediated by Asynchronous Transmitter Release
TLDR
Asynchronous release at high frequencies may help generate a smooth inhibitory "tone" by minimizing the consequences of random timing of presynaptic action potentials. Expand
Dynamic modulation of phasic and asynchronous glutamate release in hippocampal synapses.
TLDR
It is verified that a number of manipulations of Ca(2+) handling and influx selectively alter asynchronous release relative to phasic transmitter release during action potential trains in cultured excitatory autaptic hippocampal neurons, and suggested the possibility of differential control of synchronous versus asynchronous vesicle release. Expand
Shunting Inhibition Does Not Have a Divisive Effect on Firing Rates
TLDR
It is shown that shunting inhibition actually has a subtractive effect on the firing rate in most circumstances, and regulating a cell's passive membrane conductance via massive feedback is not an adequate mechanism for normalizing or scaling its output. Expand
Gain Modulation from Background Synaptic Input
TLDR
The results suggest that, within active cortical circuits, the overall level of synaptic input to a neuron acts as a gain control signal that modulates responsiveness to excitatory drive. Expand
Integration of Asynchronously Released Quanta Prolongs the Postsynaptic Spike Window
TLDR
It is demonstrated that glutamatergic terminals in PVN exhibit asynchronous release, which is important in generating large postsynaptic depolarizations and prolonged spiking in response to brief, high-frequency bursts of presynaptic activity. Expand
Synaptic depression enables neuronal gain control
TLDR
This work shows that when excitation is mediated by synapses with short-term depression (STD), neuronal gain is controlled by an inhibitory conductance in a noise-independent manner, allowing driving and modulatory inputs to be multiplied together. Expand
