"The model is for a generic, single compartment neuron with multiple ion currents. The most notable mechanisms include ClC-2 (a rectifying chloride-leak channel) and KCC2 (potassium chloride co-transporter 2). A significant feature of the model is that it tracks intracellular chloride concentration. Moreover, the GABA-A receptor is modeled as passing both chloride and bicarbonate ions, which is important for proper calculation of the GABA reversal potential. Ornstein-Unlenbeck processes to simulate synaptic inhibition and excitation are also included."
