A four-compartment model of a mammalian olfactory bulb mitral cell, reduced from the complex 286-compartment model described by Bhalla and Bower (1993). The compartments are soma/axon, secondary dendrites, primary dendrite shaft and primary dendrite tuft. The reduced model runs 75 or more times faster than the full model, making its use in large, realistic network models of the olfactory bulb practical.
Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell
Cell Type(s): Olfactory bulb main mitral GLU cell
Simulation Environment: NEURON
Implementer(s): Davison, Andrew [Andrew.Davison at iaf.cnrs-gif.fr]
