We tested the reproducibility and comparability of four astrocyte models (Manninen, Havela, Linne, 2017). Model by Lavrentovich and Hemkin (2008) was one of them. We implemented and ran the model by Lavrentovich and Hemkin (2008) using Jupyter Notebook. Model code produces results of Figure 1 in Manninen, Havela, Linne (2017).
