This paper presents a full spiking, biophysically detailed multi-compartment model of a human cortical layer 5 (L5) pyramidal cell, where model development was primarily based on morphological and electrophysiological data from the same neuron. Focus was placed on capturing distinctly human dynamics of the h-channel and led to the articulation of a novel model of this channel's dynamics in humans. This led to an explanation for the surprising lack of subthreshold resonance seen in these cells in the human as opposed to rodent setting.
