This package contains the Genesis-code for the simulations in
Maex R, De Schutter E (1998)
Synchronization of Golgi and granule cell firing in a detailed
network model of the cerebellar granule cell layer.
J. Neurophysiol. 80, 2521-2537.

Each subdirectory contains an executable Genesis script.
The following model implementations are available.
Granule_cell : contains the scripts describing a single-compartmental
granule cell. Allows for the computation of responses to current
injection and to synaptic stimulation, by running the executable TEST.g.
Golgi_cell : same as Granule_cell, but for a single-compartmental
Gran_layer_1D : describes a one-dimensional (parallel fiber axis)
segment of the cerebellar granular layer, containing mossy fibers,
granule and Golgi cells. Mossy fibers are random spike generators.
Granule and Golgi cells are the single-compartmental neurons
implemented in the Granule_cell and Golgi_cell directories described
above. The densities of neurons and synapses, the synaptic
strengths/delays and their randomization intervals, and the patterns
of mossy fiber activity are variable parameters.
The code has been run on Sun Solaris, and Mac X Linux.
The channel tables are included. In case of incompatibility,
they can be recreated by uncommenting the TABSAVE comments in
Granule_cell/TEST.g and Golgi_cell/TEST.g.
