Kumar, Ravi, Yu-Ting Huang, Chun-Chung Chen, Shun-Fen Tzeng, and Chi-Keung ChanCerebral Cortex Communications 1 (1): tgaa053 (2020). https://doi.org/10.1093/texcom/tgaa053. Synchronous bursting (SB) is ubiquitous in neuronal networks and independent of network structure. Although it is known to be driven by glutamatergic neurotransmissions, its underlying mechanism remains unclear. Recent studies show that local glutamate recycle by astrocytes…
