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 ...
Point-process modeling of excitatory/inhibitory interactions in LSO neurons
The thesis of this work is that the representation of sensory information in the discharges of single neurons can be characterized by point process models. The work focuses on the encoding of binaural information in the ...
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 ...
A distributed-parameter model of the myelinated nerve fiber
This thesis is concerned with the development of a new distributed-parameter model of the myelinated nerve fiber that includes an adequate representation of the anatomical complexity present at the node of Ranvier, considers ...
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 ...
