Fractal ion-channel behavior generates fractal firing patterns in neuronal models

Steven B. Lowen, Larry S. Liebovitch, John A. White
1999 Physical review. E, Statistical physics, plasmas, fluids, and related interdisciplinary topics  
Here, we examine the effects of fractal ion-channel activity in modifications of two classical neuronal models: Fitzhugh-Nagumo ͑FHN͒ and Hodgkin-Huxley ͑HH͒.  ...  Fractal behavior has been observed in both ion-channel gating and neuronal spiking patterns, but a causal relationship between the two has not yet been established.  ...  During the time between one spike and the next the membrane voltage assumes a wide range of values, which in turn generates a time-varying power-law exponent for the ion channels.  ...
