This NEURON code implements a microcircuit of CA1 pyramidal neuron and consists of a detailed model of CA1 pyramidal cell and four types of inhibitory interneurons (basket, bistratified, axoaxonic and oriens lacunosum-moleculare cells). Synaptic plasticity during theta cycles at a synapse in a single spine on the stratum radiatum dendrite of the CA1 pyramidal cell is modeled using a phenomenological model of synaptic plasticity (Graupner and Brunel, PNAS 109(20):3991-3996, 2012). The code is adapted from the Poirazi CA1 pyramidal cell (ModelDB accession number 20212) and the Cutsuridis microcircuit model (ModelDB accession number 123815)

TITLE minimal model of GABAa receptors

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

	Minimal kinetic model for GABA-A receptors
	==========================================

  Model of Destexhe, Mainen & Sejnowski, 1994:

	(closed) + T <-> (open)

  The simplest kinetics are considered for the binding of transmitter (T)
  to open postsynaptic receptors.   The corresponding equations are in
  similar form as the Hodgkin-Huxley model:

	dr/dt = alpha * [T] * (1-r) - beta * r

	I = gmax * [open] * (V-Erev)

  where [T] is the transmitter concentration and r is the fraction of 
  receptors in the open form.

  If the time course of transmitter occurs as a pulse of fixed duration,
  then this first-order model can be solved analytically, leading to a very
  fast mechanism for simulating synaptic currents, since no differential
  equation must be solved (see Destexhe, Mainen & Sejnowski, 1994).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Based on voltage-clamp recordings of GABAA receptor-mediated currents in rat
  hippocampal slices (Otis and Mody, Neuroscience 49: 13-32, 1992), this model
  was fit directly to experimental recordings in order to obtain the optimal
  values for the parameters (see Destexhe, Mainen and Sejnowski, 1996).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  This mod file includes a mechanism to describe the time course of transmitter
  on the receptors.  The time course is approximated here as a brief pulse
  triggered when the presynaptic compartment produces an action potential.
  The pointer "pre" represents the voltage of the presynaptic compartment and
  must be connected to the appropriate variable in oc.
