Human L5 Cortical Circuit (Guet-McCreight)

We used L5 Pyr neuron models fit to electrophysiology data from younger and older individuals to simulate detailed human layer 5 microcircuits. These circuits also included detailed parvalbumin+ (PV), somatostatin+ (SST), and vasoactivate intestinal polypeptide+ (VIP) inhibitory interneuron models.
