The experiments and modeling reported in this paper show how intrinsic bursting properties of RE cells may be explained by dendritic calcium currents.

  Procedure for localizing T-current in distal dendrites

	- Model of dissociated thalamic RE cell with 8 compartments
	- currents must be localized everywhere

	first parameter: somatic and proximal conductance
	secnd parameter: medial dendritic conductance

  In the dissociated cell, the soma, dend1[0,1,2,3] and dend3[0,1,7] were
  kept from the original and renamed soma, dend1[0,1,2,3], and dend2[0,1,2],
  repectively.


----------------------------------------------------------------------*/

proc localize() {

	/* CHANGE ALL : */

		forall { gcabar_it2 = $2 }


	/* CHANGE SOMA : */

		soma.gcabar_it2 = $1


	/* CHANGE PROXIMAL SEGMENTS : */

		dend1[0].gcabar_it2 = $1
		dend1[1].gcabar_it2 = $1
		dend1[2].gcabar_it2 = $1	// same as re80

		dend2[0].gcabar_it2 = $1	// same as dend3[0] in re80
