We explore adaptation induced bursting as a mechanism for theta oscillations in hippocampal area CA1. To do this, we have developed a mean-field system for a network of fitted Izhikevich neurons with sparse coupling and heterogeneity. The code contained here runs the mean-field system pointwise or on a two-parameter mesh, in addition to networks of neurons that are smaller then those considered in the paper. The file README.pdf contains instructions on use. Note that the following file (peakfinder): is required to compute burst frequencies in the mean-field system and must be downloaded and placed in the same root folder as MFSIMULATOR.mat
