This is model code for a large scale neocortical model based on Traub et al. (2005), modified to run on PGENESIS on supercomputing resources. "In this paper (Crone et al 2019), we evaluate the computational performance of the GEneral NEural SImulation System (GENESIS) for large scale simulations of neural networks. While many benchmark studies have been performed for large scale simulations with leaky integrate-and-fire neurons or neuronal models with only a few compartments, this work focuses on higher fidelity neuronal models represented by 50–74 compartments per neuron. ..."

** "Generic" excitatory (glutamate) and inhibitory (GABA) synaptically
**  activated channels  (based on mitsyn.g by Upi Bhalla)
** The channels have an alpha_function type conductance change for
** each synaptic event.
** Modified by D. Beeman for GENESIS 2.0 syntax and synchan object - 5/19/94
