Firing rate of the leaky integrate-and-fire neuron with stochastic conductance-based synaptic inputs with short decay times

Journal Article

We compute the firing rate of a leaky integrate-and-fire (LIF) neuron with stochastic conductance-based inputs in the limit when synaptic decay times are much shorter than the membrane time constant. A comparison of our analytical results to numeric simulations is presented for a range of biophysically-realistic parameters.
