We used a combined experimental and numerical parameter peeling procedure was implemented to optimize a detailed ionic mechanism for the generation and propagation of dendritic spikes in neocortical L5 pyramidal neurons. Run the cc_run.hoc to get a demo for dendritic calcium spike generated by coincidence of a back-propagating AP and distal synaptic input.
