Salamander retinal ganglian cells: morphology influences firing (Sheasby, Fohlmeister 1999)

Nerve impulse entrainment and other excitation and passive phenomena are analyzed for a morphologically diverse and exhaustive data set (n=57) of realistic (3-dimensional computer traced) soma-dendritic tree structures of ganglion cells in the tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum) retina.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Cell Type(s): Retina ganglion GLU cell

Currents: I Na,t; I A; I K; I K,Ca; I Calcium

Model Concept(s): Action Potential Initiation; Activity Patterns; Dendritic Action Potentials; Bursting; Coincidence Detection; Simplified Models; Active Dendrites; Influence of Dendritic Geometry; Detailed Neuronal Models; Axonal Action Potentials; Action Potentials; Calcium dynamics

Simulation Environment: NEURON

Implementer(s): Sheasby, Brent W
