Metadata generic

  • Authors: Y Poirazi
  • Comments: Ca r-type channel with medium threshold for activation used in somatic regions. It has lower threshold for activation/inactivation and slower activation time constant than the same mechanism in dendritic regions. Uses channel conductance, written by y poirazi dec 2001. Adapted from magee and johnston (1995), modified to account for ca2+ spikes. No model db ancestors. This is a modeling study, and the animal model is considered to be rat. The authors compare the model to experimental results mostly in rats (e.g. Magee 1998, spruston et al. 1995) and the morphology used is also from rat (2 months old, cannon et al. 1998, n123). Channel kinetics come from various sources.
  • Runtime: 7.557
