Abstract
Many mammalian neuronal networks, such as Central Nervous System (CNS), fire single spikes and complex spike burst. In fact, the conditions for triggering burst are not well understood. In the paper multi-electrode array (MEA) is used to record the spontaneous electrophysiology activity of cultured rat hippocampal neuronal networks for long-term. The transition from single spikes to burst is observed on networks that is cultured about 3 weeks and quickly fire before burst activity. The firing rate during burst is lower than that before burst, but the difference of inter spike intervals (ISIs) between the two firing patterns is not distinctness. Moreover, the electrical activities on neighboring electrodes show strong synchrony during burst activity. In a word, the generation of burst requires that network has a sufficient level of excitation as well as the balance by synaptic inhibition.
