Abstract or Additional Information

Many circuits in the brain produce repetitive, multi-phase activity patterns.  There are several simplified mathematical frameworks that researchers use to model these circuits, and there is a need for work to compare these frameworks.  In this talk, I will introduce three such model classes and will consider how they respond to modulation of the strength of an input signal.  I will also introduce the local timing response function, which provides a useful tool for this analysis.
