Wave Propagation of Synchrony in Computer Simulations of Neuronal Networks
Computer simulations of networks of electrically coupled neurons, reciprocally connected to their nearest neighbors with periodically boundary conditions, show waves of synchronous neurons evolving along the network. We explore different coupling scenarios as well neurons exhibiting distinct behaviors including tonic and bursting firing of action potentials, as allowed by the model equations we use for the individual neurons. Part of this study may be of relevance for the study of neuronal activity associated with epilepsy and seizures due to abnormal electrical firing in the brain.
