Ephaptic coupling causing neural activity - new form of neuron communication

Looks like researchers from Case Western Reserve have found a new way of neuron excitation/inhibition that doesn’t depend on synaptic, axonal, nor gap junction transmission. It appears a “brain wave” can “jump” across cuts in brain tissue, and continue propagating, causing measurable neural activity.


I understand what they are describing.
I don’t know how to use it in a network model.
I have enough trouble trying to model thalamo-cortical resonance.
