High entrainment constrains synaptic depression in a globular bushy cell (Rudnicki & Hemmert 2017)

Help downloading and running models
" ... Here we show how different levels of synaptic depression shape firing properties of GBCs in in vivo-like conditions using computer simulations. We analyzed how an interplay of synaptic depression (0 % to 70 %) and the number of auditory nerve fiber inputs (10 to 70) contributes to the variability of the experimental data from previous studies. ... Overall, this study helps to understand how synaptic properties shape temporal processing in the auditory system. It also integrates, compares, and reconciles results of various experimental studies."
