Channel 20212-ican

General data

Metadata classes

  • Animal Model: rat
  • Brain Area: hippocampus, CA1
  • Neuron Region: unspecified
  • Neuron Type: pyramidal cell
  • Subtype: CAN

Metadata generic

  • Authors: A Destexhe
  • Comments: Slow ca-dependent nonspecific cation current ican, activated by intracellular calcium, not voltage dependent. Kinetics based on partridge & swandulla (1988), from destexhe et al. 1994, model no. 3670. Not used in main model implementation here [found in not-currently-used folder]. 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: Model has temperature dependence, with q10 set to 3.0 and original kinetics at 22.0 deg C. Simulations were done at 34 deg C.
