    We demonstrate that bifurcations of periodic orbits underlie the dynamics of the Hindmarsh–Rose model and other square-wave bursting models of neurons of the Hodgkin–Huxley type. Such global bifurcations explain in-depth the transitions between the tonic spiking and bursting oscillations in a model.We show that a modified Hindmarsh-Rose model can exhibit the blue sky bifurcation, and a bistability of the coexisting tonic spiking and bursting activities.
