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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Characterization of the currents underlying rhythmic firing in mammalian dopaminergic neurons
A mathematical model of midbrain dopamine neurons has been developed in order to understand the mechanisms underlying two types of calcium-dependent firing patterns that these cells exhibit in vitro. The first is the ...
