Fig : point neuron and neuron with a dendrite



  • A: a point neuron model can only trigger a simple EPSP everytime it receives an incoming spike. EPSPs are combined solely on the basis of the spike arrival time.
  • B: A neuron with a dendrite and a single input synapse.
  • C: a spatio-temporally sensitive setting. All the synapses together can form a composite EPSP based on the combination of several single EPSPs generated by each synapse.
