Drosophila projection neuron electrotonic structure (Gouwens and Wilson 2009)

We address the issue of how electrical signals propagate in Drosophila neurons by modeling the electrotonic structure of the antennal lobe projection neurons innervating glomerulus DM1. The readme file contains instructions for running the model.

Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell

Region(s) or Organism(s): Drosophila

Cell Type(s): Drosophila antennal lobe DM1 projection neuron

Model Concept(s): Invertebrate; Electrotonus

Simulation Environment: NEURON

Implementer(s): Gouwens, Nathan W [nathan_gouwens at hms.harvard.edu]
