A set of models is presented based on 2 related parameterizations to reproduce spiking and bursting behavior of multiple types of cortical neurons and thalamic neurons. These models combine the biologically plausibility of Hodgkin Huxley-type dynamics and the computational efficiency of integrate-and-fire neurons. Using these model, one can simulate tens of thousands of spiking cortical neurons in real time (1 ms resolution) using a desktop PC.
Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell
Cell Type(s): Abstract Izhikevich neuron
