"... We simulated detailed conductance-based models of TTCs (Layer 5 thick tufted pyramidal cells) forming recurrent microcircuits that were interconnected as found experimentally; the network was embedded in a realistic background synaptic activity. ... Our findings indicate that dendritic nonlinearities are pivotal in controlling the gain and the computational functions of TTCs microcircuits, which serve as a dominant output source for the neocortex.

:Comment : mtau deduced from text (said to be 6 times faster than for NaTa)
:Comment : so I used the equations from NaT and multiplied by 6
:Reference : Modeled according to kinetics derived from Magistretti & Alonso 1999
:Comment: corrected rates using q10 = 2.3, target temperature 34, orginal 21
