Frog second-order vestibular neuron models (Rossert et al. 2011)

This implements spiking Hodgkin-Huxley type models of tonic and phasic second-order vestibular neurons. Models fitted to intracellular spike and membrane potential recordings from frog (Rana temporaria). The models can be stimulated by intracellular step current, frequency current (ZAP) or synaptic stimulation.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Cell Type(s): Vestibular neuron; Abstract Morris-Lecar neuron

Currents: I T low threshold; I K,Ca; I Sodium; I Potassium

Transmitters: Glycine; Gaba; Glutamate

Model Concept(s): Simplified Models; Action Potentials; Sensory processing; Vestibular

Simulation Environment: NEURON

Implementer(s): Roessert, Christian [christian.a at]
