Resource competition in growing neurites (Hjorth et al 2014)

Computer model of neurite outgrowth in a simplified neuron. A growth limiting resource is produced in the soma, transported through the neurites and consumed at the growth cones.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Model Concept(s): Simplified Models; Development

Simulation Environment: Python

Implementer(s): Hjorth, Johannes [hjorth at]
