The pyloric network of the stomatogastric ganglion in crustacea is a
central pattern generator that can produce the same basic rhythm over a
wide frequency range. Three electrically coupled neurons, the anterior
burster (AB) neuron and two pyloric dilator (PD) neurons, act as a
pacemaker unit for the pyloric network. The functional characteristics
