Stochastic model for pituitary corticotrophs (Duncan et al., 2022)

This model describes the electrical activity of pituitary corticotrophs, in which bursting occurs due to the stochastic opening of BK-type potassium channels.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Currents: I K,Ca

Model Concept(s): Bursting

Simulation Environment: MATLAB

Implementer(s): Bertram, Richard [rbertram at]
