Hodgkin-Huxley style model for a neuron of the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN). Modified from DeWoskin et al, PNAS, 2015 to include a persistent sodium current. The model is used to study the role of the kinase GSK3 in regulating the electrical activity of SCN neurons through a persistent sodium current.
