Python demo of the VmT method to extract conductances from single Vm traces (Pospischil et al. 2009)

This python code implements a method to estimate synaptic conductances from single membrane potential traces (the "VmT method"), as described in Pospischil et al. (2009). The method uses a maximum likelihood procedure and was successfully tested using models and dynamic-clamp experiments in vitro (see paper for details).

Model Type: Synapse

Model Concept(s): Methods
