CA3 hippocampal pyramidal neuron with voltage-clamp intrinsic conductance data (Traub et al 1991)

This is a third-party implementation of the model from Traub et al 1991; as of 2021, Google Scholar reports about 780 citation articles. This model was one of the first biophysical models of a hippocampal pyramidal neuron with realistic conductances and the conductance equations have been used as a starting point for many models since, particularly those examining calcium dynamics and bursting.
