Spontaneous firing caused by stochastic channel gating (Chow, White 1996)

NEURON implementation of model of stochastic channel gating, resulting in spontaneous firing. Qualitatively reproduces the phenomena described in the reference.

Model Type: Channel/Receptor

Currents: I K; I Sodium

Model Concept(s): Action Potential Initiation; Activity Patterns; Ion Channel Kinetics; Temporal Pattern Generation; Axonal Action Potentials; Action Potentials

Simulation Environment: NEURON

Implementer(s): Carnevale, Ted [Ted.Carnevale at Yale.edu]; Donnelly, David [david.donnelly at yale.edu]
