Piriform cortex network model with multicompartment neurons for cell assemblies (Traub et al 2021)

Model contains layer 2 and layer 3 pyr cells, semilunar cells, and multiple types of superficial and deep interneurons. Used to investigate how cell assemblies and sharp waves emerge in different parameter regimes. Correlated with experimental recording. May be useful to better understand how the structure could be used for associative memory.

Model Type: Realistic Network

Transmitters: Glutamate; Gaba

Simulation Environment: FORTRAN

Implementer(s): Traub, Roger D [rtraub at us.ibm.com]
