"... To explore the relationship between conductances, and in particular how they influence the activity of motor neurons in the well characterized leech heartbeat system, we developed a new multi-compartmental Hodgkin-Huxley style leech heart motor neuron model. To do so, we evolved a population of model instances, which differed in the density of specific conductances, capable of achieving specific output activity targets given an associated input pattern. ... We found that the strengths of many conductances, including those with differing dynamics, had strong partial correlations and that these relationships appeared to be linked by their influence on heart motor neuron activity. Conductances that had positive correlations opposed one another and had the opposite effects on activity metrics when perturbed whereas conductances that had negative correlations could compensate for one another and had similar effects on activity metrics.

# Libmake: A Makefile template for creating a new user library.
#
# SYNOPSIS: It is recommended that each library have its own makefile
# and its own subdirectory for clarity of organization.  That makefile
# should be based on this template makefile.  The subdirectory should
# contain all of the object files needed to compile the library as well
# as all header files, support files, and the script file for loading
# the library (e.g. userlib.g).  The parent directory (the level above
# each library subdirectory) should contain a makefile based on the file
# "Usermake".
#
# PROCEDURE:
# 0) Copy this makefile to the subdirectory containing the particular
#    library you wish to build.
#
# 1) Edit the makefile to define values for the variables below:
#
#    LIBRARY_NAME
#	Set this to the desired name of the library.  In the example
#       library provided in Scripts/newlib, the name of the library is
#       "example".
#
#    FUNCTIONS
#	Set this to the name of the file containing the list of public
#	function names in the library.
#
#	Note: The FUNCTIONS file is not necessary in GENESIS 2.x, 
#             because public function names are added automatically when
#             referenced in the library startup script.  Functions not
#             referenced by an addfunc or object startup command may be
#             declared as public functions with the hashfunc startup
#             command.
#
#             If you are converting a 1.4 library to 2.0 you may use
#             the FUNCTIONS file by following the instructions below.
#
#    STRUCTURES
#	Set this to the name of the file containing the structure
#	definitions for objects in the library.
#
#    EXT_HEADER
#	Set this to the name of the header file containing the
#	appropriate include references needed to compile the library
#	files.
#
#    TARGET_OBJ
#	Set this to the name of the library object which will be
#	compiled This is normally just the LIBRARY_NAME with 'lib.o'
#	appended to it.
#
#    OBJECTS
#	List the user object files (with the .o extension) which will be
#	a part of the library.

# Provide values for the variables below.  Here is an example of what
# the values might be like:
#   LIBRARY_NAME = example
