Model of a Neuron with Afterdepolarization and Short-Term Memory
In this paper, we propose a model describing the dynamics of a neuron capable of storing the so-called short-term memory. From the dynamical viewpoint, the effect of short-term memory means that the neuron “ remembers” the fact of its short-pulse excitation and the action potential is periodically generated for a long time after it. This mechanism of memory storage is realized due to the property of afterdepolarization included in the model. This property is well known in real (live)neurons of cortex and hippocampus.
