Map-based models of spiking-bursting activity of neurons

A simple phenomenological model of neuronal activity can be built in the form of a system of difference equations (a map). Here, I present an example of such a model that was designed to capture the dynamical features of spikes and bursts. The first variable of the model represents the fast dynamics (spikes) and the second one stands for relatively slow adaptation. Here you can download a simple demo illustrating the waveforms generated by the model LabView   and Simulink  . The detailed discussion of the model dynamics can be found in N.F. Rulkov, Phys. Rev. E, 65 (2002) 041922.

If you do not have LabView in your computer you can install LabView Run-time Engine from National Instruments
