Inhibitory neurons have two types of impact on brain oscillations: A certain type of neuron, called inhibitory neurons, can have two types of overall effect on oscillations in the brain

Synchronization is important to understanding how neurons behave, which is particularly relevant with regard to brain diseases like Alzheimer's, epilepsy and Parkinson's. Now, a group of researchers has used a combination of two computer models to study the ways different kinds of neurons can impact synchronization.
