A fast a-type potassium current, used in role of a striatal slowly inactivating potassium current in short-term facilitation of corticostriatal inputs. No apparent modeldb ancestors. Parameters and kinetics partially from rat neostriatal data in surmeier et al. (1989). Animal model is from in vivo rat data as presented in other mahon et al. (2000) paper. This channel's kinetics and parameters are partially from rat neostriatal data in surmeier et al. (1989).
Model has temperature dependence, with original kinetics at 22 deg C and q10 set to 2.5. Simulations performed at 37 deg C.
