Abstract

The dynamic behavior of a network model consisting of all-to-all excitatory coupled binary neurons with global inhibition is studied analytically and numerically. We prove that for random input signals, the output of the network consists of synchronized bursts with apparently random intermissions of noisy activity. Our results suggest that synchronous bursts can be generated by a simple neuronal architecture which amplifies incoming coincident signals. This synchronization process is accompanied by dampened oscillations which, by themselves, however, do not play any constructive role in this and can therefore be considered to be an epiphenomenon.
