We present two alternative mappings between a macroscopic neural mass model and a reduction of a conductance-based model. These provide possible explanations of the relationship between parameters of these two different approaches to modeling neuronal activity. Obtaining a physical interpretation of neural mass models is of fundamental importance as they could provide direct and accessible tools for use in diagnosing neurological conditions.
