Inner hair cell auditory nerve synapse model (Deligeorges, Mountain 1997)

This model simulates the response of the synapse between the inner hair cell and an auditory nerve fiber to a square voltage pulse applied to the IHC membrane. The model output is average firing rate. More details of this model can be found in: Deligeorges and Mountain.

Model Type: Synapse

Cell Type(s): Cochlea hair outer GLU cell

Model Concept(s): Audition

Simulation Environment: MATLAB

Implementer(s): Mountain, David [dcm at]; Deligeorges, S
