This GENESIS simulation shows how a single or compound excitatory synaptic potential evoked by mechanosensory stimulation spreads over the dendrites of the LDS interneuron that is one of the identified nonspiking interneurons in the central nervous system of crayfish Procambarus clarkii. The model is based on physiological experiments carried out by Akira Takashima using single-electrode voltage clamp techniques and also 3-D morphometry of the interneuron carried out by Ryou Hikosaka using confocal laser scanning microscopic techniques. The physiological and morphological studies were coordinated by Masakazu Takahata.
