Computational modeling of cellular and network properties of central vestibular neurons is necessary for understanding the mechanisms of sensory-motor transformation for gaze stabilization. As a first step to mathematically describe vestibular signal processing, the available physiological data of the synaptic and intrinsic properties of frog second-order vestibular neurons (2 degrees VN) were used to create a model that combines cellular and network parameters. With this approach it is now possible to reveal the particular contributions of intrinsic membrane versus emerging network properties in shaping labyrinthine afferent-evoked synaptic responses in 2 degrees VN, to simulate perturbations, and to generate hypotheses that are testable in empiric experiments.
