  • Experiment 1 was replicated with the gap junction conductance increased (experiment 5) or decreased (experiment 7) an order of magnitude or with the synaptic conductance increased (experiment 6) or decreased (experiment 8) an order of magnitude. Although the number of predictions varied, no changes in the consensus configuration were suggested as a consequence of these manipulations.
