CN bushy, stellate neurons (Rothman, Manis 2003) (Brian 2)

This model is an updated version of Romain Brette's adaptation of Rothman & Manis (2003). The model now uses Brian 2 instead of Brian 1 and can be configured to use n cells instead of a single cell. The included figure shows that Brian 2 is more efficient than Brian 1 once the number of cells exceeds 1,000.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Cell Type(s): Cochlear nucleus bushy GLU cell; CN stellate cell

Currents: I Na,p; I Na,t; I L high threshold; I A; I K; I K,leak; I Potassium; I Sodium

Model Concept(s): Temporal Pattern Generation; Action Potentials

Simulation Environment: Brian; Python; Brian 2

Implementer(s): McCall, Thomas [thomas.mccall at]
