This chapter shows that variability in interneuronal parameters, including cellular (e.g., channels influencing interneuronal firing patterns) as well as various synaptic parameters (e.g., peak amplitude and kinetics of the GABAergic conductances), can significantly modulate a number of functional features, including firing rates, oscillatory patterns, and network synchrony. Some simple rules are established for predicting the direction of variance-induced changes.
