This archive contains 3 mod files for NEURON that implement the short term synaptic plasticity model described in Varela, J.A., Sen, K., Gibson, J., Fost, J., Abbott, L.R., and Nelson, S.B.. A quantitative description of short-term plasticity at excitatory synapses in layer 2/3 of rat primary visual cortex. Journal of Neuroscience 17:7926-7940, 1997. Contact ted.carnevale@yale.edu if you have questions about this implementation of the model.
