  • Brain Area: lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), thalamus, thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN)
  • Neuron Type: thalamocortical relay cell (TC, TCR), thalamic reticular (RE) cell
  • Runtime Q: Q3
  • Subtype: T-type

Metadata generic

  • Age: not specified
  • Authors: A Destexhe
  • Comments: Reticular thalamus ca2+ current responsible for low threshold spikes, model based on data from huguenard & mccormick 1992. Kinetics adapted to fit t-channel of reticular neuron, time constant fitted to experimental data. Ancestry is unclear, but we cite destexhe et al. (1994), model no. 3670. Animal model is as specified in the paper, from previous results in bal et al. 1995a,b, kim et al. 1995, von krosigk et al. 1993.
  • Runtime: 7.87
  • Temperature: Model has temperature dependence, with q10 set to 2.5 for m and h variables, and original kinetics at 24 deg C.
