An Empirical Model Describing the Dynamics of Graded Transmission in the Lobster Pyloric Network
Graded synaptic transmission plays an important role in both invertebrate and vertebrate systems. Models that describe graded synaptic transmission can be valuable tools to understand network dynamics. Few studies have previously attempted to develop such models (De Schutter et al., 1993). In this paper, we present a model for graded synaptic transmission that relies on simplifying (and experimentally justified) assumptions and requires few experimental measurements.
