Bifurcations in Neuron Dynamics

10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Magpie A/B

Neural excitability, spiking, and bursting result from certain bifurcations of the membrane potential of the cell. Revealing these bifurcations in mathematical models and in vivo helps to understand and classify dynamical properties of neurons and their networks. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss recent work on neurons and neuron network models.

Organizer: Eugene M. Izhikevich
