Repetitive Burst firing in vivo

The generation of visually-evoked 30-70 Hz oscillatory activity is often associated with the generation of a unique pattern of rhythmic burst firing in which single cells generate bursts of 2-5 action potentials with an intraburst frequency of approximately 400-800 Hz and an interburst frequency of 30-70 Hz. Note that the activity of the single neuron is synchronized with that of the background multiple-unit activity.
