An interaction model between a neuron and a astrocyte has been implemented. The conductance-based neuron model reproduces many different neuronal behaviors like spiking, bursting, subthreshold oscillations, spiking adaptation. The interaction between the two types of cells is based on the exchange of glutamate between the two types of cells. The astrocityc feedback induce seizure-like bursting activity in the neuron.

The MATLAB code will come soon (i have first to check again my code….)
