A detailed network model of the dual-layer dendro-dendritic inhibitory microcircuits in the rat olfactory bulb comprising compartmental mitral, granule and PG cells developed by Aditya Gilra, Upinder S. Bhalla (2015). All cell morphologies and network connections are in NeuroML v1.8.0. PG and granule cell channels and synapses are also in NeuroML v1.8.0. Mitral cell channels and synapses are in native python.

       <!-- Djurisic et al 2008 model multiple excitatory+inhibitory conductances over the whole tuft with time course as below.
        They also model a single excitatory + inhibitory synapse at the base of the tuft as a proxy to the multiple synapses above. 
        Since I am modeling multiple synapses in the tuft, I use the former synaptic time course as below. -->
