This NEURON code implements a microcircuit of CA1 pyramidal neuron and consists of a detailed model of CA1 pyramidal cell and four types of inhibitory interneurons (basket, bistratified, axoaxonic and oriens lacunosum-moleculare cells). Synaptic plasticity during theta cycles at a synapse in a single spine on the stratum radiatum dendrite of the CA1 pyramidal cell is modeled using a phenomenological model of synaptic plasticity (Graupner and Brunel, PNAS 109(20):3991-3996, 2012).
The code is adapted from the Poirazi CA1 pyramidal cell (ModelDB accession number 20212)
and the Cutsuridis microcircuit model (ModelDB accession number 123815)
