We study the influence of individual neuronal dynamics and network topology on synchronization of bursting neurons. We demonstrate that the type and duration of bursting are the critical characteristics that determine the synchronization properties of the network. We show that the onset of synchrony in an excitatory-inhibitory network with any coupling topology admitting spike synchronization is ensured by one single condition.
