Using kinetic data from three different K+ currents in acutely isolated neurons, a single electrical compartment model representing the soma of a ventral cochlear nucleus (VCN) neuron was created. The K+ currents include a fast transient current (IA), a slow-inactivating low-threshold current (ILT), and a noninactivating high-threshold current (IHT). The model also includes a fast-inactivating Na+ current, a hyperpolarization-activated cation current (Ih), and 1-50 auditory nerve synapses. With this model, the role IA, ILT, and IHT play in shaping the discharge patterns of VCN cells is explored. Simulation results indicate these currents have specific roles in shaping the firing patterns of stellate and bushy CN cells. (see readme.txt and the papers, esp 2003c, for details).
