Metadata generic

  • Age: not specified
  • Authors: A Destexhe
  • Comments: Ca2+ current responsible for low threshold spikes (lts) in thalamocortical cells. Model based on huguenard & mccormick (1992), data from huguenard & prince (1992), described in destexhe et al. (1996). Written by a destexhe 1995. Likely adapted from destexhe et al. (1994), model no. 3343. Modeling study with experimental results from cat, rat and other sources. The animal model reflects some experimental data that was compared with the model. The model used here is simple, two compartments for cortical neurons and one compartment for thalamic neurons.
  • Runtime: 7.707
  • Temperature: Model has temperature dependence, with q10 set to 3.0 for m and h variables and original kinetics at 24 deg C.
