Multiple modes of inner hair cell stimulation (Mountain, Cody 1999)

This model simulates the membrane potential of an inner hair cell for a sinusoidal stimulus to the hair bundle. It uses a 2-state Boltzmann model for the tension-gated conductance in the stereocilia and a linear model for the basolateral membrane. This model is based on the IHC model used in Mountain and Cody (1999).
