WILSON AND COWAN REVISITED AFTER 42 YEARS

Abstract

In their famous 1972 paper, Wilson and Cowan describe the dynamics of a population of neurons. One of the key assumptions is that the mean membrane potential and the firing rate have a sigmoidal dependence. Recent experiments show that the dependence can also take the form of a Gaussian. In this lecture we highlight some of the consequences. This is joint work of the lab of Wim van Drongelen (Chicago) and the Applied Analysis group  (UT).
