A model of a CA1 pyramidal neuron containing a biophysically realistic morphology and 15 distributed voltage and Ca2+-dependent conductances. Repetitive firing is modulated by maximal conductance and the voltage dependence of the persistent Na+ current (INaP).
Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell
Region(s) or Organism(s): Hippocampus
Cell Type(s): Hippocampus CA1 pyramidal GLU cell
Simulation Environment: NEURON
Implementer(s): Horstmann, Marie-Therese [mhorstma at uni-bonn.de]
