The task of understanding how different areas of the brain interact with each other to perform higher level functions such as motor coordination and speech is a major interest of modern neuroscience, but also an extremely difficult one. Many factors contribute to the global dynamics of neural networks. The goal of this chapter is to study a computationally efficient spiking cortical neuron model first introduced by Izhikevich in 2003, and to generalize this model to a network of neurons. Ultimately, you will obtain and examine a raster plot of modeled network activity.
