NEURON mod files for the I-A and I-K currents from the paper:
Wang, et al., Whole-cell K+ currents in identified olfactory
bulb output neurones of rats. J Physiol. 1996 490:63-77.
Running the kinetics.hoc simulation file will show
the activation and inactivation steady-states, the time constants,
and a family of curves generated modeling the same protocols
used for Figs.6B-C of the paper.
Markers show the experimental values reported in the paper (Table.1).
For the I-A current, two parameters (shi_kamt and sha_kamt)
have been introduced to take into account the shift in the kinetics (Fig.4B)
observed using different bathing solutions
(with or without Ca++, see legend of Fig.4).
Default values for shi_kamt (inactivation) and sha_kamt (activation)
are 5.7 and 9.9mV, respectively.
shi_kamt = sha_kamt = 0 was used here (solid lines in Fig.4B).
Under unix systems:
to compile the mod files use the command
and run the simulation hoc file with the command
Under Windows using NEURON 5.1:
to compile the mod files use the "mknrndll" command.
A double click on the simulation file
will open the simulation window.
