Response properties of an integrate and fire model (Zhang and Carney 2005)

"A computational technique is described for calculation of the interspike interval and poststimulus time histograms for the responses of an integrate-and-fire model to arbitrary inputs. ... For stationary inputs, the regularity of the output was studied in detail for various model parameters. For nonstationary inputs, the effects of the model parameters on the output synchronization index were explored. ... these response properties have been reported for some cells in the ventral cochlear nucleus in the auditory brainstem. "
