Central Nervous System tadpole model in Matlab and NEURON-Python (Ferrario et al, 2021)

This is the source code for three compuational models used for generating connectivity and swimming dynamics of spinal cord and hindbrain neurons in the Xenopus tadpoles using biological data. The model reproduces the initiation, continuation, termination and accelaration of forward swimming.

Region(s) or Organism(s): Xenopus

Receptors: AMPA; NMDA; Glycine

Simulation Environment: NEURON; MATLAB; Python

Implementer(s): Ferrario, Andrea [andrea.ferrario at plymouth.ac.uk]
