We consider the problem of how to recover the state and parameter values of typical model neurons, such as Hindmarsh-Rose, FitzHugh-Nagumo, Morris-Lecar, from in-vitro measurements of membrane potentials. In control theory, in terms of observer design, model neurons qualify as locally observable. However, unlike most models traditionally addressed in control theory, no parameter-independent diffeomorphism exists, such that the original model equations can be transformed into adaptive canonic observer form. For a large class of model neurons, however, state and parameter reconstruction is possible nevertheless. We propose a method which, subject to mild conditions on the richness of the measured signal, allows model parameters and state variables to be reconstructed up to an equivalence class. © 2010 World Scientific Publishing Company.
