Network model that includes biophysically detailed, single-compartment and multicompartment neuron models of relay-cells and interneurons in the dLGN and a population of orientation-selective layer 6 simple cells, consisting of pyramidal cells (PY). We have considered two different arrangements of synaptic feedback from the ON and OFF zones in the visual cortex to the dLGN: phase-reversed (‘push-pull’) and phase-matched (‘push-push’), as well as different spatial extents of the corticothalamic projection pattern. This project is the result of a research work and its associated publication is: (Martínez-Cañada et al 2018).

TITLE Cortical M current
:
:   M-current, responsible for the adaptation of firing rate and the 
:   afterhyperpolarization (AHP) of cortical pyramidal cells
:
:   First-order model described by hodgkin-Hyxley like equations.
:   K+ current, activated by depolarization, noninactivating.
:
:   Model taken from Yamada, W.M., Koch, C. and Adams, P.R.  Multiple 
:   channels and calcium dynamics.  In: Methods in Neuronal Modeling,
