In the paper, this model was used to identify how relative differences in K+ conductances, specifically KC, KM, & KD, between cells contribute to the different characteristics of the three types of firing patterns observed experimentally.

COMMENT
	calcium accumulation into a volume of area*depth next to the
	membrane with a decay (time constant tau) to resting level
	given by the global calcium variable cai0_ca_ion
	Modified to include a resting current (irest) and peak value
	(cmax)
	i is a dummy current needed to force a BREAKPOINT
