Disinhibition — NeuroTinker


Disinhibition circuits are thought to be important for learning and memory, amongst other neurological functions. You can model this phenomenon in several way using NeuroBytes, including the circuit in the video below. The irregular interneuron firing is determined by the interplay of excitation and inhibition from the two tonically active neurons (TANs). If the TAN on the left is inhibited by a sensory neuron (pressure sensory neuron in this example), the interneuron becomes disinhibited and begins to fire in time with the right TAN.

Can you build other NeuroBytes circuits that produce similar behaviors?
