The Quadratic Integrate-and-Fire Neuron Network Model uses a network of Quadratic Integrate-and-Fire neurons to demonstrate how connectivity influences network synchrony. The user selects the number of neurons and the degree of connectivity, and can see how the neurons synchronize over time. In addition, the user can watch the potential of a single neuron. Although the dynamics of a single neuron do not change, the network architecture has a dramatic effect on how quickly the neurons will synchronize.
The Quadratic Integrate-and-Fire Neuron Network Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed. You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the map and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
