The Quadratic Integrate-and-Fire model is a slight modification of the integrate-and-fire model. This slight modification has some drastic changes on the dynamics, although the equation is still solvable analytically in order to determine the period of a continuously-spiking neuron. Because of its simplicity, the Quadratic Integrate-and-Fire model and its variations are favorites for mathematical treatments of neural networks.

The Quadratic Integrate-and-Fire 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.

Please note that this resource requires
at least version 1.6 of
Java (JRE).
