Bursting respiratory net: clustered architecture gives large phase diff`s (Fietkiewicz et al 2011)

Using a previous model of respiratory rhythm generation, we modified the network architecture such that cells can be segregated into two clusters. Cells within a given cluster burst with smaller phase differences than do cells from different clusters. This may explain the large phase differences seen experimentally, as reported in the paper.
