The authors investigated the hypothesis that 20-80Hz neuronal (gamma) oscillations can emerge in sparsely connected network models of GABAergic fast-spiking interneurons. They explore model NN synchronization and compare their results to anatomical and electrophysiological data from hippocampal fast spiking interneurons.
