To characterize network dynamics, the synchronization index for the whole population of PCs was calculated for burst stimuli. Using spike trains of all PCs with a 1 ms time bin, the coefficient of cross-correlation between any two PCs was calculated, i.e., CCij is the correlation coefficient between PC i and j. Then the network synchronization is given by,

where N is the number of the PCs in the network. The average Knet, based on the firing rate over a time windows, was calculated for a period of post-burst stimulation in different parameters of burst setting. We used 20, 30 and 40 ms for bursts of 2, 5 and 7 spikes at 200 Hz, and 200, 100, 50 and 40 ms for busts of 50, 100, 200 and 300Hz with 10 spikes, respectively.
