Bursting is a rapid signaling mode in neurons whereby clusters of two or more action potentials are emitted as a single signaling event. Burst mode is thought to be useful for signaling important events and routing information in the brain. In general, there are two types of bursting:
- Input-driven bursting, where strong excitatory inputs produce a rapid activation and burst of action potentials
- Intrinsic bursting, where voltage-gated ion channels intrinsic to the neuron convert brief suprathreshold inputs into long-lasting bursts of action potential output.
