A model of lateral inhibition and directional selectivity in the crayfish compound eye
This study models the network interactions of five classes of neurons in the crayfish retina which support lateral inhibition and directional selectivity. The models approximate pulse responses and responses to drifting ...
Statistical and biophysical modeling of binaural interaction in the lateral superior olive
The Lateral Superior Olive (LSO) is believed to be involved in encoding high frequency localization information based on interaural level difference (ILD) and interaural time difference (ITD) cues. Details of how this ...
An ionic current model for neurons in the rat medial nucleus tractus solitarius receiving sensory afferent input
An ionic current model has been developed for the rat medial nucleus tractus solitarius (mNTS) neuron that provides a quantitative description of the ionic macrocurrents present in the soma of the cell, and their interaction ...
An electrodiffusion model of conduction in nerve fibers
A new membrane model for mammalian nerve fibers has been developed. The membrane model utilizes new characterizations for delayed-rectifier currents, and adds an inwardly-rectifying potassium channel as well as a ...
