The Fast Spiking (FS) interneurons are coupled by both electrical and inhibitory synapses and experimental findings suggest that they operate as a clockwork affecting the processing of neural information. At present, it is not known which is the functional role of electrical synapses in a network of inhibitory interneurons. In our contribution, by using a single compartment biophysical model of an FS cell, we determine the parameter values leading to the emergence of synchronous regimes in a network of FS interneurons coupled by chemical and electrical synapses. We also compare our results with those recently obtained for a pair of coupled Integrate & Fire neural models
