Dendritic tip geometry effects electrical properties (Tsutsui, Oka 2001)

In their teleost thalamic neuron models the authors demonstrate a dramatic increase in the passive propagation of synaptic inputs through the dendritic stalk to the soma in cells with larger tips.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Cell Type(s): Teleost thalamic neuron

Model Concept(s): Simplified Models; Influence of Dendritic Geometry

Simulation Environment: NEURON
