An artificial neural network approach to dimension reduction of dynamical systems is proposed and applied to conductance-based neuron models. Networks with bottleneck layers of continuous-time dynamical units could make a two-dimensional model from the trajectories of the Hodgkin-Huxley model and a three-dimensional model from the trajectories of a six-dimensional bursting neuron model. Nullcline analysis of these reduced models revealed the bifurcations of the dynamical system underlying firing and bursting behaviors.
