Abstract or Additional Information

We study gamma rhythms arising in noisy networks of coupled theta neurons using the Fokker Planck approach. We also developed the adjoint operator for the resulting PDE and use this to study the sensitivity to various parameters and locking to periodic stimuli in the gamma range.
