HH model neuron of the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus including a persistent Na+ channel (Paul et al 2016)

Hodgkin-Huxley style model for a neuron of the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN). Modified from DeWoskin et al, PNAS, 2015 to include a persistent sodium current. The model is used to study the role of the kinase GSK3 in regulating the electrical activity of SCN neurons through a persistent sodium current.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Cell Type(s): Suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) neuron

Currents: I Na,p; I Calcium; I K,Ca; I K,leak; I Na, leak

Simulation Environment: MATLAB

Implementer(s): DeWoskin, Daniel [dadewoskin at gmail.com]
