Bistability of different synchronous firing patterns arising in networks of pyramidal cells and interneurons which include depressing synapses is demonstrated. The firing modes differ in their frequencies, in the type of firing pattern and in their degree of synchrony. The network elements governing the frequency of each mode are identified and ways to transition between modes are discussed.
