In a series of papers the authors conducted experiments to develop understanding and models of fly visual system HS, CS, and VS neurons. This model recreates the VS neurons from those papers with enough success to merit approval by Borst although some discrepancies remain (see readme).
Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell
Region(s) or Organism(s): Drosophila
