The model was used to reproduce experimentally determined mean synaptic response characteristics of unitary AMPA and NMDA synaptic stimulations in CA3 pyramidal cells with the objective of inferring the most likely response properties of the corresponding types of synapses. The model is primarily concerned with passive cells, but models of active dendrites are included.
