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 ...
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 ...
