Analyzing the Effects of Gap Junction Blockade on Neural Synchrony via a Motoneuron Network Computational Model

Figure 7

Example from the 100 motoneuron network showing the effects of opening gap junctions when input current is low. In this simulation, the input current was set at  nA, which is approximately rheobase for a single HM, and the gap junctions were initially almost fully closed. At  ms, gap junctions were opened, which rapidly resulted in the cessation of firing.
