Problem 1

1. Implementation of the integrate-and-fire (IF) neuron

\dot{V} = -λ V + F c(t)

where \frac{⟨\dot{C}⟩}{⟨C⟩} << λ


\begin{align*} & \frac{ ΔV}{ Δt} = -λ V(t) + Fc(t)\\ ⟺ & V(t+Δt) - V(t) = (-λ V(t) + Fc(t)) Δt\\ ⟺ & V(t+Δt) = (1-λ Δt) V(t) + Fc(t)Δt\\ \end{align*}

Time-varying signal:

\dot{x} = -λx + c

So that if $c$ varies slowly:

0 ≃ \dot{x} = -λx + c ⟹ x ≃ c/λ
