This model includes ion concentration dynamics (sodium, potassium, chloride) inside and outside the neuron, the exchange of ions with glia and blood vessels, volume dynamics of neuron, glia, and extracellular space, glutamate homeostasis involving release by neuron and uptake by both neuron and glia. Spreading depolarization is used as a case study.
