  1. pmc Toggling between gamma-frequency activity and suppression of cell assemblies
    Christoph Börgers
    Department of Mathematics, Tufts University Medford, MA, USA
    Front Comput Neurosci 7:33. 2013
    ..The strengths of the E-cell spike volleys don't oscillate, and there is a nearly abrupt transition from PING to ING (a rhythm involving I-cells only)...
  2. pmc Minimal size of cell assemblies coordinated by gamma oscillations
    Christoph Börgers
    Department of Mathematics, Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts, United States of America
    PLoS Comput Biol 8:e1002362. 2012
    ..We make specific predictions about the behavior of pyramidal cells and fast-spiking interneurons in these experiments...
  3. pmc The response of a classical Hodgkin-Huxley neuron to an inhibitory input pulse
    Christoph Börgers
    Department of Mathematics, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    J Comput Neurosci 28:509-26. 2010
    ..These findings have potential implications for the question which neurons participate in brain rhythms, in particular in gamma oscillations...
  4. ncbi request reprint Gamma oscillations and stimulus selection
    Christoph Börgers
    Department of Mathematics, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Neural Comput 20:383-414. 2008
    ..We hypothesize that therein lies, at least in part, the functional significance of the experimentally observed link between attentional biasing of stimulus competition and gamma frequency rhythmicity...
  5. pmc Background gamma rhythmicity and attention in cortical local circuits: a computational study
    Christoph Börgers
    Department of Mathematics, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:7002-7. 2005
    ..We suggest that such rhythms accompany states of preparatory attention or vigilance and report simulations demonstrating that their presence can amplify stimulus-specific responses and enhance stimulus competition within a local circuit...
  6. pmc Gamma oscillations mediate stimulus competition and attentional selection in a cortical network model
    Christoph Börgers
    Department of Mathematics, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:18023-8. 2008
    ..The mechanism is a form of "oscillatory selection," in which neural interactions change phase relationships that regulate firing rates, and attention shapes those neural interactions...

    Christoph Börgers
    Department of Mathematics, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Neural Comput 17:557-608. 2005
    ..Together with an argument explaining why the PING mechanism does not work far above the gamma range in the presence of heterogeneity, this justifies the "G" in "PING."..
  8. ncbi request reprint Synchronization in networks of excitatory and inhibitory neurons with sparse, random connectivity
    Christoph Börgers
    Department of Mathematics, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, U S A
    Neural Comput 15:509-38. 2003
    ..Faster decay yields tighter synchrony. In particular, in models in which the inhibitory synapses are assumed to be instantaneous, the effects of sparse, random connectivity cannot be seen...

    Jonathan Cannon
    Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Boston University, 111 Cummington Mall, Boston, MA, 02215, USA
    Eur J Neurosci 39:705-19. 2014
    ..We offer support to the premise that the physiology underlying brain rhythms plays an essential role in how these rhythms facilitate some cognitive operations. ..
