Abstract

Two probabilistic threshold models for burst activity of cortical neurons are proposed. In model I every input impulse increases the summed effect of previous input impulses by one unit. The decay of the summed effect takes place in discrete steps of one unit. A response occurs on arrival of an input impulse, when a threshold value is attained. Although after a response the summed effect is not reset to zero, it cannot exceed the threshold either. The distribution of intervals can be resolved in two components, one for long and one for short intervals. In model II intervals of the short component are terminated by a multiple response instead of one response.
