The codes are directly related with the results presented in the manuscript; in brief, it is a computational investigation on the effects of optogenetic actuation on excitatory and inhibitory neurons when 3- and 4- state model is used to implement the ChR2 kinetics. Different parameters of optostimulation are investigated and the results compared with experimental data previously published by other research groups.
