Metadata generic

  • Age: 2-4 weeks
  • Authors: A Destexhe
  • Comments: Cortical muscarinic potassium current: noninactivating k+ current responsible for adaptation of firing rate and slow afterhyperpolarization (ahp), hh-like. Model from mainen and sejnowski 1996, written by a destexhe 1996. Paper cites hodgkin-huxley (1952) as well as destexhe and paré (1999). Does not appear to derive from km.mod from mainen & sejnowski (1996). No modeldb ancestors. Animal model comes from the in vitro experiments in paper. Note that model morphology comes from previous study of cat parietal cortex neurons (layers 2/3, 5, 6) from douglas et al. 1991, and contreras et al. 1997.
  • Runtime: 7.317
