Exploring the kinetics and distribution of the muscarinic potassium channel, IM, in 2 O-LM interneuron morphologies. Modulation of the ion channel by drugs such as XE991 (antagonist) and retigabine (agonist) are simulated in the models to examine the role of IM in spiking properties.
Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell
Cell Type(s): Hippocampus CA1 interneuron oriens alveus GABA cell
Simulation Environment: NEURON
