Model of olfactory bulb (OB) and anterior olfactory nucleus (AON) pyramidal cells. Includes olfactory sensory neurons, mitral cells, periglomerular, external tufted and granule interneurons and pyramidal cells. Can be built to include a feedback loop between OB and AON. Output consists of voltage and spikes over time in all neurons. Model can be stimulated with simulated odorants. The code submitted here has served for a number of modeling explorations of olfactory bulb and cortex. The model architecture is defined in "bulb.dat" with synapses defined in "channels.dat". The main function to run the model can be found in "neuron.c". Model architecture is constructed in "set.c" from types defined in "sim.c". A make file to create an executable is located in "neuron.mak".
