Mixed mode oscillations as a mechanism for pseudo-plateau bursting (Vo et al. 2010)

Help downloading and running models
"We combine bifurcation analysis with the theory of canard-induced mixed mode oscillations to investigate the dynamics of a novel form of bursting. This bursting oscillation, which arises from a model of the electrical activity of a pituitary cell, is characterized by small impulses or spikes riding on top of an elevated voltage plateau. ..."
