Our 5-cell model consists of competing fast and slow oscillators connected to a hub neuron with electrical and inhibitory synapses. Motivated by the Stomatogastric Ganglion (STG) circuit in the crab, we explored the patterns of coordination in the network as a function of the electrical coupling and inhibitory synapse strengths with the help of a novel visualization method that we call the "Parameterscape." The code submitted here will allow you to run circuit simulations and to produce a Parameterscape with the results.
