"The present study examines the biophysical properties and functional implications of Ih in hippocampal area CA3 interneurons with somata in strata radiatum and lacunosum-moleculare.... The functional consequences of Ih were examined with regard to temporal summation and impedance measurements. ... From impedance measurements, we found that Ih did not confer theta-band resonance, but flattened the impedance–frequency relations instead. ... Finally, a model of Ih was employed in computational analyses to confirm and elaborate upon the contributions of Ih to impedance and temporal summation."

The folders contain sample code for the simulations underlying Fig 6, Fig 7 and Fig S6. 

* For Fig 6, open the corresponding folder and execute Fig6BC.m. Functions will be called 
to generate voltage traces, impedance curves, and phase plots identical to those in panels 
B and C.

* For Fig 7, execute Fig7ACD.m to generate the traces shown in panels A, Ca, and Cb.

* Finally, we included code for simulated voltage-clamp of our Ih model (Fig 6A, and Fig S6). 
Execute VClamp_Activation.m to generate a family of curves showing h-current responses to the 
voltage-clamp protocol for activation of gh (Fig 1C).
