Phase oscillator models for lamprey central pattern generators (Varkonyi et al. 2008)

In our paper, Varkonyi et al. 2008, we derive phase oscillator models for the lamprey central pattern generator from two biophysically based segmental models. We study intersegmental coordination and show how these models can provide stable intersegmental phase lags observed in real animals.

Model Type: Realistic Network; Connectionist Network

Model Concept(s): Temporal Pattern Generation; Oscillations; Spatio-temporal Activity Patterns; Parameter Fitting; Parameter sensitivity; Phase Response Curves
