Spike Response Model simulator (Jolivet et al. 2004, 2006, 2008)


The Spike Response Model (SRM) optimized on the experimental data in the Single-Neuron modelling Competition ( www.incf.org/community/competitions ) for edition 2007 and edition 2008. The Spike Response Model is a simplified model of neuronal excitability where current linearly integrates to an artificial threshold. After the spike, the threshold is augmented and the voltage follows a voltage kernel that is the average voltage trace during and after a spike. The parameters were chosen to best fit the observed spike times with a method outlined in Jolivet et al. (2006).
