Working memory circuit with branched dendrites (Morita 2008)

This is a rate-coding model of the neocortical spatial working memory circuit incorporating multiple dendritic branches of the individual pyramidal cell in order to examine how nonlinear dendritic integration, combined with the nonuniform distribution of the external input, affects the behavior of the whole circuit.

Model Type: Realistic Network
