This is a 5-neuron model of neocortex, containing one tufted layer-5 pyramidal cell, two non-tufted pyramidal cells, and two inhibitory interneurons. It was used to reproduce extracellular spike shapes in a study comparing algorithms for spike sorting and electrode selection. The neuron models are adapted from Dyhrfjeld-Johnsen et al. (2005).
