This is an implementation of an established "electrostimulation model" subjected to a set of stimulation protocols. Such models and protocols are used to predict the response of neural tissue to stimulation by electromagnetic fields or direct application of extracellular current in order to "evaluate the efficacy and safety of medical devices, or to develop guidelines or standards on acceptible incidental exposure that may not be related to patient exposure for medical purposes."
