Human somatosensory and motor axon pair to compare thresholds (Gaines et al 2018)

These motor and sensory axon models are based on the MRG axon model and the Howells motor and sensory compartment models. They take into account known differences in the channel properties between sensory and motor neurons.

Model Type: Axon

Region(s) or Organism(s): Human

Model Concept(s): Development; Action Potentials; Touch

Simulation Environment: NEURON
