This model is used in the referenced paper to demonstrate that a model of an SK-like calcium-sensitive potassium (KCa) conductance can replicate the spike frequency adaptation (SFA) of the locust lobula giant movement detector (LGMD) neuron. The model simulates current injection experiments with and without KCa block in the LGMD, as well as visual stimulation experiments with and without KCa block.
Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell
Cell Type(s): Locust Lobula Giant Movement Detector (LGMD) neuron
Simulation Environment: MATLAB
