A model of the neuronal reciprocal inhibitory oscillator was developed in this study by use of an entirely electronic platform. Neuronal Oscillators were widely studied in previous research due to their important roll as central pattern generators. Our model consisted of two electronic components, the neuron emulator for modeling the electrical activities of a neuron and the artificial synapse for mimicking a synaptic connection between two neurons. The typical bursting patterns of action potentials were demonstrated by connecting two Neuron Emulators with the Artificial Synapse. These electronic devices provided a unique hardware platform for studying reciprocal inhibitory oscillators and other neuronal networks. © 2006 IEEE.
