Multiple modes of a conditional neural oscillator (Epstein, Marder 1990)

We present a model for a conditional bursting neuron consisting of five conductances: Hodgkin-Huxley type time- and voltage-dependent Na+ and K+ conductances, a calcium activated voltage-dependent K+ conductance, a calcium-inhibited time- and voltage-dependent Ca++ conductance, and a leakage Cl- conductance. Different bursting and silent modes and transitions between them are analyzed in the model and compared to bursting modes in experiment. See the paper for details.
