Abstract:This article deals with the simulation of percept-choices when an ambiguous stimulus is interrupted. A system of two inhibitory leaky integrate-and-fire neurons which can explain spontaneous percept switches while this stimulus is on is extended in two ways: by adding the calcium-activated non-specific cation (CAN) current and by adding the Ether-à-go-go related gene (ERG) current. The model which includes the CAN-current is found to yield similar results for percept-choices in simulations as have been found in experiments with human subjects. The model which includes the ERG-current yields less satisfactory results. This suggests that the CAN-current might be a mechanism underlying percept-choices for ambiguous stimuli.
