VTA neurons: Morphofunctional alterations in acute opiates withdrawal (Enrico et al. 2016)

" ... Here we present a biophysical model of a DA VTA neuron based on 3D morphological reconstruction and electrophysiological data, showing how opiates withdrawal-driven morphological and electrophysiological changes could affect the firing rate and discharge pattern...."

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Cell Type(s): Ventral tegmental area dopamine neuron

Model Concept(s): Activity Patterns; Addiction

Simulation Environment: NEURON

Implementer(s): Enrico, Paolo [enrico at uniss.it]
