RANDOM WALK MODELS FOR THE SPIKE ACTIVITY OF A SINGLE NEURON.

Abstract

Quantitative methods for the study of the statistical properties of spontaneously occurring spike trains from single neurons have recently been presented. Such measurements suggest a number of descriptive mathematical models. One of these, based on a random walk towards an absorbing barrier, can describe a wide range of neuronal activity in terms of two parameters. These parameters are readily associated with known physiological mechanisms.
