Metadata generic

  • Age: 3-5 weeks old
  • Authors: AS, B Kampa
  • Comments: T-type ca channel (low threshold), leading to thalamic ca current. Inspired by destexhe and huguenard, modified from as oct 1999, b kampa 2005. From kampa & stuart (2006), model no. 108458, with no modification (identical mod file). These papers feature experimental electrophysiology and imaging, as well as construction of a morphology of a l2/3 pyramidal neuron for modeling. The animal model info here is from the experimental methods, although the experiments may also have been performed in other layers as well.
  • Runtime: 6.925
  • Temperature: No temperature dependence
