The (Wang 1994) papers model was replicated in python by (Detorakis 2016). "The model is conductance-based and takes advantage of the
interplay between a T-type calcium current and a non-specific cation sag current and
thus, it is able to generate spindle and delta rhythms." The model also generates intermittent phase locking, non periodic firing, bursts, and tonic spike patterns.
