Model of the 3-cell core CPG (DSI, C2, and VSI-B) mediating escape swimming in Tritonia diomedea. Cells use a hybrid integrate-and-fire scheme pioneered by Peter Getting. Each model cell is reconstructed from extensive physiological measurements to precisely mimic I-F curves, synaptic waveforms, and functional connectivity.

: This model implements a simple leak function described by
: Getting, 1989 and utilized by Lieb and Frost, 1998.
: Created by Bob Calin-Jageman
: Created 	9/20/2002
: Modified 	9/20/2002
: Mathcheck  - Complete  9/31/2002
: Unitscheck - questions about resistance units
: Explanation
: Leak current calculated as difference between current and resting membrane
: potentials divided by resistance
: Resistance should be in megaOhms
: resting potential should be in millivolts
: output current will be in milliamps
