Nodose sensory neuron (Schild et al. 1994, Schild and Kunze 1997)

This is a simulink implementation of the model described in Schild et al. 1994, and Schild and Kunze 1997 papers on Nodose sensory neurons. These papers describe the sensitivity these models have to their parameters and the match of the models to experimental data.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Currents: I Na,t; I N; I T low threshold; I A; I K; I K,Ca; Na/Ca exchanger

Model Concept(s): Activity Patterns; Parameter Fitting; Calcium dynamics; Parameter sensitivity

Simulation Environment: MATLAB (web link to model)

Implementer(s): Snitsarev, Vladislav [snitsavl at]
