We simulated chirp current stimulation in the apical dendrites of 5 biophysically-detailed multi-compartment models of neocortical pyramidal tract neurons and found that a combination of HCN channels and TASK-like channels produced the best fit to experimental measurements of dendritic impedance. We then explored how HCN and TASK-like channels can shape the dendritic impedance as well as the voltage response to synaptic currents.

COMMENT
26 Ago 2002 Modification of original channel to allow variable time step and to correct an initialization error.
    Done by Michael Hines(michael.hines@yale.e) and Ruggero Scorcioni(rscorcio@gmu.edu) at EU Advance Course in Computational Neuroscience. Obidos, Portugal

na.mod

Sodium channel, Hodgkin-Huxley style kinetics.  

Kinetics were fit to data from Huguenard et al. (1988) and Hamill et
al. (1991)

qi is not well constrained by the data, since there are no points
between -80 and -55.  So this was fixed at 5 while the thi1,thi2,Rg,Rd
were optimized using a simplex least square proc

voltage dependencies are shifted approximately from the best
fit to give higher threshold
