  • Comments: Calcium-dependent potassium channel from mainen & sejnowski (1996), model no. 2488. Modified by rkp jan 2000 and jul 2005 to include contribution from l-type calcium channels. Note that there is no separate mod file for calcium dynamics here (as in cad.mod for model no. 2488). Model no. 2488 is not referenced in the paper, and no reference is given for the dynamics of the channels. Since 2488 is the ultimate ancestor of the mod file, it is listed here as the ancestor model. Modeling study. Not much information on how the model is constructed, but its performance is compared with some data from cat motoneurons. It is considered generic here because the paper does not mention any experiments that the model is based on.
  • Runtime: 67.632
  • Temperature: No temperature dependence, simulations run at 37 deg C.
