" ... Here we show that the voltage fluctuations associated with dendrosomatic synaptic activity propagate significant distances along the axon, and that modest changes in the somatic membrane potential of the presynaptic neuron modulate the amplitude and duration of axonal action potentials and, through a Ca21- dependent mechanism, the average amplitude of the postsynaptic potential evoked by these spikes. These results indicate that synaptic activity in the dendrite and soma controls not only the pattern of action potentials generated, but also the amplitude of the synaptic potentials that these action potentials initiate in local cortical circuits, resulting in synaptic transmission that is a mixture of triggered and graded (analogue) signals."

The model pyramidal cell with full dendritic tree and axon arbor is
for simulating the action potential generation process of pyramidal
cells in layer V of prefrontal cortex.

code: best_full_axon_decay.hoc
This code is used to calculate the spacial decay constant of main
axon.

code: best_full_axon_spike_init.hoc
This code is used to calculate the initiation point of action
potential in axon initial segment.

Notice:
After running code, output data file is saved in a file called
"seg.dat" which can be analysized by the matlab code 'for_decay.m',
and 'for_initiation.m'.
