Models analysis for auditory-nerve synapse (Zhang and Carney 2005)

"A general mathematical approach was proposed to study phenomenological models of the inner-hair-cell and auditory-nerve (AN) synapse complex. Two models (Meddis, 1986; Westerman and Smith, 1988) were studied using this unified approach. The responses of both models to a constant-intensity stimulus were described mathematically, and the relationship between model parameters and response characteristics was investigated. ...". The paper then modifies these to make a more physiologically realistic model.
