We use biophysically-based models of interneurons from the cricket cercal sensory system to examine the effects of membrane properties on interneuron processing of dynamic sensory input. Our models incorporate five different ion channel types formulated using experimental data. Model sensory inputs are based on experimental recordings from afferent neurons in response to air current stimuli. We use these models to examine the effects of membrane properties and synaptic integration on interneuron processing of dynamic sensory input.
