From: Effective neuronal refractoriness dominates the statistics of superimposed spike trains

Figure 1

A: Membrane potential trajectories of a simulated neocortical neuron. After each spike, the potential has to charge up until spikes can be initiated by input fluctuations, leading to an effective refractoriness. Green line shows the mean subthreshold trajectory, yellow lines show mean +/- standard deviation. B: Scheme of the independent superposition of three spike trains. Adapted from [6].
