Dendro-dendritic synaptic circuit (Shepherd Brayton 1979)

A NEURON simulation has been created to model the passive spread of an EPSP from a mitral cell synapse on a granule cell spine. The EPSP was shown to propagate subthreshold through the dendritic shaft into an adjacent spine with significant amplitude (figure 2B).

Model Type: Dendrite

Model Concept(s): Influence of Dendritic Geometry; Olfaction

Simulation Environment: NEURON

Implementer(s): Morse, Tom [Tom.Morse at]
