Channel 108458-CaT

General data

Metadata classes

  • Animal Model: Wistar, rat
  • Brain Area: somatosensory cortex, layer 5, cortex
  • Neuron Region: dendrites
  • Neuron Type: pyramidal cell
  • Runtime Q: Q1 (fast)
  • Subtype: T-type

Metadata generic

  • Age: 3-4 weeks old
  • Authors: B Kampa
  • Comments: T-type calcium channel, originally from thalamic ca current inspired by destexhe and huguenard. Uses fixed eca instead of ghk equation. Modified by as, 1999, modified by b kampa, 2005. Paper cites schaefer et al. (2003), model no. 22203, as ancestor model, which does not contain a t-type calcium channel mod file. Ancestor file is unclear. Animal model is from experiments in this study. Kinetics based off of previous studies on cortical and hippocampal pyramidal neurons.
  • Runtime: 7.2
  • Temperature: No apparent temperature dependence.
