In this paper, the authors define 6 classes of bursting in swim neurons:

Tritonia burst types

Quoted from paper:

  • a) high-frequency bursts, symmetrical around their peak, with a rapid rising phase and a rapid falling phase
  • b) high-frequency bursts, asymmetrical around their peak, with a slow rising phase and a rapid falling phase
  • c)high-frequency bursts, asymmetrical around their peak, with a rapid rising phase and a slow falling phase
  • d) high-frequency bursts, symmetrical around their peak, with a slow rising and slow falling phase;
  • e) low-frequency bursts;
  • f) bursts with two frequency peaks. In cells with type f bursts, both frequency peaks occurred during a single flexion phase of the swim cycle, and the bursts are continuous. The pattern of activity in these cells thus differs from that in the class III and IV cells, which have one burst in each flexion phase separated by an interburst interval.
