Bifurcation of a Modified BVP Circuit Model for Neurons Generating Rectangular Waves

By Kunichika Tsumoto, Tetsuya YOSHINAGA and Hiroshi


this paper, we investigate burst responses with rectangular waveform observed in an electrical circuit described by the MBVP equation.The study ofrectangular waves is motivated by an investigation of a pattern-#S==x6.-## neuron.It is known that most rhythmic behaviors such as respiration, locomotion and feeding are under the control of neuronalnetworks in central pattern generators.The snail'sfeeding rhythm [5], or rhythmic ingestive movements of the radula and mouth, is relatively simple and then the feeding neuron enables a better understanding of the neural basis of rhythm generation.Self-##x.46LSj.-# of the neuron show an interesting property such that the period of the wave monotonously depends on the variation of a physical parameter.This phenomenon isconsidered as an essence of making feeding rhythms.The purpose of this study is to clarify mechanisms of variou
