Simple model of spiking neurons

IEEE Trans Neural Netw. 2003;14(6):1569-72. doi: 10.1109/TNN.2003.820440.


A model is presented that reproduces spiking and bursting behavior of known types of cortical neurons. The model combines the biologically plausibility of Hodgkin-Huxley-type dynamics and the computational efficiency of integrate-and-fire neurons. Using this model, one can simulate tens of thousands of spiking cortical neurons in real time (1 ms resolution) using a desktop PC.
