This is an attempt to recreate a set of simulations originally performed in 1994 under NEURON version 3 and last tested in 1999. When I ran it now it did not behave exactly the same as previously which I suspect is due to some minor mod file changes on my side rather than due to any differences among versions. After playing around with the parameters a little bit I was able to get something that looks generally like a physiological trace in J Neurophysiol, 81:702--711, 1999, fig. 8b top trace. This sad preface is simply offered in order to encourage anyone who is interested in this model to make and post fixes. I'm happy to help out. Simulation by JJ Zhu To run nrnivmodl nrngui.hoc
