General data

Metadata classes

  • Brain Area: hippocampus, CA1
  • Neuron Region: unspecified
  • Neuron Type: pyramidal cell
  • Subtype: active flux

Metadata generic

  • Authors: A Destexhe
  • Comments: Fast mechanism for submembranal ca2+ concentration (cai). Takes into account: (1) increase of cai due to calcium currents and (2) extrusion of calcium with a simple first order equation. Mechanism is compatible with the pump "cad" and has the same name and parameters, but the pump is dummy here. Written by a destexhe 1995. Not used in main model implementation here [found in not-currently-used folder]. Taken from destexhe et al. (1996), model no. 3343. This is a modeling study, and the animal model is considered to be rat. The authors compare the model to experimental results mostly in rats (e.g. Magee 1998, spruston et al. 1995) and the morphology used is also from rat (2 months old, cannon et al. 1998, n123). Channel kinetics come from various sources.
  • Temperature: No apparent temperature dependence. Simulations were done at 34 deg C.
