"Spiking and bursting patterns of neurons are characterized by a high degree of variability. A single neuron can demonstrate endogenously various bursting patterns, changing in response to external disturbances due to synapses, or to intrinsic factors such as channel noise. We argue that in a model of the leech heart interneuron existing variations of bursting patterns are significantly enhanced by a small noise. In the absence of noise this model shows periodic bursting with fixed numbers of interspikes for most parameter values. ..."
