A single compartment model in Matlab to represent vestibular ganglion neurons' somatic ion channels and their influence on firing patterns. Model is connected to a synthetic synaptic conductance to examine the relative influence of synaptic inputs and low-voltage gated potassium conductances on spike patterns.
Model Type: Synapse
Cell Type(s): Abstract integrate-and-fire leaky neuron; Abstract integrate-and-fire leaky neuron with dendritic subunits; Abstract single compartment conductance based cell; Vestibular neuron; Turtle vestibular neuron
Simulation Environment: MATLAB
