The optimal input current for a reduced neuron model and a specific target spiking time is obtained. The objective of optimization is to minimize the total input energy to the system subject to a zero net input integral over the time horizon. This “charge-balance constraint” ensures that no net external charge is injected into the neuron. The results are compared to optimal currents for which the charge-balance constraint is not imposed.
