Oscillations and bursting
Topics covered in this lesson
- Bursting, unstable periodic orbits
- Square wave burst
- Elliptic burst
- Parabolic burst
- Excitatory and inhibitory synapses
- Phase resetting curve
- Phase and limit cycles
- Isochrones ('equal time' curves)
Some familiarity with the electrical properties of neurons, for instance the (longer) introductory lectures in Cellular Mechanisms of Brain Function or the (shorter) tutorial series on Basic mathematics for computational neurosciences. Knowledge of differential equations. Some familiarity with dynamical systems concepts and/or linear algebra (stability, equilibrium, matrices, finding eigenvalues).
The previous lectures in the series.
