dc.description.abstract We study a recently discovered class of models for plateau bursting, inspired by models for endocrine pituitary cells. In contrast to classical models for fold-homoclinic (square-wave) bursting, the spikes of the active phase are not supported by limit cycles of the frozen fast subsystem, but are transient oscillations generated by unstable limit cycles emanating from a subcritical Hopf bifurcation around a stable steady state. Experimental time courses are suggestive of such fold-subHopf models because the spikes tend to be small and variable in amplitude; we call this pseudo-plateau bursting. We show here that distinct properties of the response to attempted resets from the silent phase to the active phase provide a clearer, qualitative criterion for choosing between the two classes of models. The fold-homoclinic class is characterized by induced active phases that increase towards the duration of the unperturbed active phase as resets are delivered later in the silent phase. For the fold-subHopf class of pseudo-plateau bursting, resetting is difficult and succeeds only in limited windows of the silent phase but, paradoxically, can dramatically exceed the native active phase duration. en
