A phase sensitivity based method for prediction of modes of behavior in quadrupedal locomotion
The objective of this study is development of prediction methods for characterizing the electrical behavior of ring type central pattern generators (CPGs). A mathematical model of the prototypical bursting neuron R15 from ...
Quantifying information coding limits in sensory systems
Neurons code information about sensory stimuli temporally in the times of occurrence of action potentials as well as spatially in the joint discharge patterns of neurons within an ensemble. In this work, we present a ...
Models of electrical activity, calcium concentration, and synaptic plasticity in Aplysia neurons
Mathematical models of two Aplysia neurons simulate salient features of the electrical and chemical activity of these neurons. First, the endogenous burster R15 was modeled as a Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) type membrane equivalent ...
Point-process modeling of excitatory/inhibitory interactions in LSO neurons
The thesis of this work is that the representation of sensory information in the discharges of single neurons can be characterized by point process models. The work focuses on the encoding of binaural information in the ...
An electrodiffusion model of conduction in nerve fibers
A new membrane model for mammalian nerve fibers has been developed. The membrane model utilizes new characterizations for delayed-rectifier currents, and adds an inwardly-rectifying potassium channel as well as a ...
Characterizing the afferent limb of the baroreflex
In this study, we develop a model of left ventricular and near-systemic hemodynamics, together with a three-component model of the aortic baroreceptor (BR) using experimental data from rat. The hemodynamic model possesses ...
