The roles of inhibitory neurons in synchronous firing are examined in a network of excitatory and inhibitory neurons with Watts and Strogatz's rewiring. By examining the persistence of the synchronous firing that exists in the random network, it was found that there is a probability of rewiring at which a transition between the synchronous state and the asynchronous state takes place, and the dynamics of the inhibitory neurons play an important role in determining this probability.
