Chaos in the AdEx model

Fig. 8B from: Touboul, J. and Brette, R. (2008). Dynamics and bifurcations of the adaptive exponential integrate-and-fire model. Biological Cybernetics 99(4-5):319-34.

This shows the bifurcation structure when the reset value is varied (vertical axis shows the values of w at spike times for a given a reset value Vr).
