One very notable example of intrinsically bursting neurons are the thalamocortical relay cells. They have a hyperpolarization-activated calcium channel which leads to periodic bursting at delta frequency. The hyperpolarization activation allows these neurons to switch from tonic firing (esp. during wakefulness) to burst firing (esp. during sleep). The ...
