Robust Modulation of Integrate-and-Fire Models

Neural Computation
Tomas Van PottelberghRodolphe Sepulchre


By controlling the state of neuronal populations, neuromodulators ultimately affect behavior. A key neuromodulation mechanism is the alteration of neuronal excitability via the modulation of ion channel expression. This type of neuromodulation is normally studied with conductance-based models, but those models are computationally challenging for large-scale network simulations needed in population studies. This article studies the modulation properties of the multiquadratic integrate-and-fire model, a generalization of the classical quadratic integrate-and-fire model. The model is shown to combine the computational economy of integrate-and-fire modeling and the physiological interpretability of conductance-based modeling. It is therefore a good candidate for affordable computational studies of neuromodulation in large networks.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
