A question on integration

Another common input is a pulse function. This is the brain's equivalent of an impulse function.

The height of the function represents the firing frequency of a neuron. Neurons have a finite firing frequency. That of neurons that generate saccades is about 1000 action potentials (ap's) per sec.
