Abstract

The synchronous effects of a pair of Morris-Lecar neurons, which was connected by excitable and inhibitory coupling, is studied in this paper. The theory of phase response is applied to examine how synchronization patterns are influenced by coupling strength. Based on the numerical simulation, we derive the region of synchrony and asynchrony as a function of coupling strength and the external stimulation. These analysis may provide us better insight into neuronal encoding and information transmission.
