These scripts were used to model a patch of layer 2/3 primary auditory cortex, making use of the the improvements to PGENESIS by Crone, et al. (2019). This single layer model contains a 48 x 48 grid of pyramidal cells (PCs) and a 24 x 24 grid of basket cells (BCs). The reduced PC models have 17 compartments with dimensions and passive properties that were fit to human cortical PC reconstructions. This parallel version of the simulation was used by Beeman, et al. (2019) to understand the effects of inhibition of PCs by BCs on auditory evoked potentials.

// In polar mode 'r' is in microns, theta and phi in degrees 
// readcell options start with a '*'
