The interplay of inhibitory and electrical synapses results in complex persistent activity

  title={The interplay of inhibitory and electrical synapses results in complex persistent activity},
  author={R. Janaki and Adityapuram Sivaraman Vytheeswaran},
Inhibitory neurons play a crucial role in maintaining persistent neuronal activity. Although connected extensively through electrical synapses (gap-junctions), these neurons also exhibit interactions through chemical synapses in certain regions of the brain. When the coupling is sufficiently strong, the effects of these two synaptic modalities combine in a nonlinear way. Hence, in this work, we focus on the strong inhibition regime and identify the parametric conditions that result in the…

It is proposed to investigate whether a useful notion of “gene” can be constructed based on an underlying notion of function, and whether this can serve as the necessary link and embed the various distinct gene concepts of biological (sub)disciplines in a coherent theoretical framework.
