In Frontiers of Computational Neuroscience, researchers discuss how a better understanding of astrocyte-neuron coupling may lead to providing building blocks for studying the regulatory capability of astrocytic networks on a larger scale, through nine papers which cover a range of issues from computational models of astrocyte-neuron interactions to the role of astrocytes in neurological disorders.
In Frontiers of Computational Neuroscience, researchers suggest a new biophysical motivated derivation of a single compartment model that integrates the non-linear effects of shunting inhibition, where an inhibitory input on the route of an excitatory input to the soma cancels or “shunts” the excitatory potential.
