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
Simulation Environment: NEURON
Implementer(s): Roessert, Christian [christian.a at roessert.de]
