1. What are the differences between pulse coupling found among neuron cells and diffusive coupling found in cells that exhibit calcium waves?

  2. Moreover, in both methods, is it a strict requirement that the cells have to be adjacent to each other or at a distance from each other.

I know this is not a mathematical forum, but can anyone answer the next question or at least point out some books/article where I can learn them.

  1. How can we represent pulse and diffusive coupling mathematically?
  • $\begingroup$ I don't know what you are referring to in Q1. What calcium waves? Can you give us a reference? $\endgroup$

Partial answer:

  1. As for a book on the topic of mathematical modeling of coupled neural oscillators, you can start with:
