Metadata generic

  • Age: adult
  • Authors: M Lazarewicz.
  • Comments: Modeling based on traub et al. (1994) and traub et al. (2003c), conductances from traub et al. 2003 and cunningham et al. 2004. This file: calcium low threshold (t-type) current for rd traub 2003, model no. 20756, implemented by m lazarewicz 2003. Minimal changes, inlcluding extra variables to compare with fortran implementation and modification of units. Note: uses nonspecific current, doesn't cause ca2+ influx. Based on data from destexhe et al. (1998). Modeling study, with many neurons in the cortex and thalamus. This channel model is one of two cat channels, with this one mainly being used for glutamatergic cells. The animal model info here is from electrophysiology experiments also in this paper, both in vivo and in vitro.
  • Runtime: 7.29
  • Temperature: Channel model has no temperature dependence. Experiments done at 34-37 deg C, simulations likely done at physiological temperatures.
