For installation instructions, see INSTALL.txt
Simulations have been tested using NEURON 5.9 and 6.0 under
Windows and GNU/Linux. The gnuplot script has been tested with
gnuplot 4.2 (http://www.gnuplot.info).

Description of files:
./gc.hoc Starts the simulations. Requires mod files to be compiled.
./asin.mod arcsine function, forwarded to hoc from math.h
./spines.mod Introduces spine area scale factor as a range variable
Optionally, spine counts can be used as a range variable
as well (count_spines).
./synampa.mod Synaptic conductance change with a biexponential time course.
./share/calcSpines.hoc Calculate spine area scale factor from spine counts. Corrects
for spines hidden behind the shaft in 2D projections.
./share/config.hoc Simulation configuration settings.
./share/controlpanel.hoc Main control panel allowing cell and figure selection.
./share/figures.hoc Procedures reproducing figures.
./share/fixnseg.hoc d_lambda rule implementation.
./share/genutils.hoc Some general-purpose routines.
./share/spine.hoc Creates a spine, consisting of a neck (spine) and a
./share/template.plt Template script file for creating a gnuplot script that
will show a 3D plot as in figure 6D.
./cell_x/membrane.hoc Loads cell morphology and connections, initializes spines,
inserts passive membrane properties. Uses a class "cell_x"
so that you can easily toggle between cells or use multiple
objects for network simulations.
./cell_x/morpho.hoc Loads morphology and spines without making use of a class.
Intended for standalone use of cells.
./cell_x/morpho.txt Coordinates and diameters of 3D points as plain text. Needed
by membrane.hoc to load 3D morphology from a procedure.
Cell templates now adhere to the "NetworkReadyCell" syntax - fixed some minor bugs. Schmidt-Hieber.
