Gap junctions between striatal FS neurons has very weak ability to synchronise spiking. Input uncorrelated between neighbouring neurons is shunted, while correlated input is not.

Figure 2A and 2B

This figure just exemplifies the change in spiking when two neurons go
from uncoupled to coupled, by adding gap junctions. Any voltage trace
outputted from the other scripts will do.

Voltage traces can be loaded from any of the simulations using:

d = load('yourdatafilehere.data');
plot(d(:,1),d(:,2:end));
