We simulated chirp current stimulation in the apical dendrites of 5 biophysically-detailed multi-compartment models of neocortical pyramidal tract neurons and found that a combination of HCN channels and TASK-like channels produced the best fit to experimental measurements of dendritic impedance. We then explored how HCN and TASK-like channels can shape the dendritic impedance as well as the voltage response to synaptic currents.

TITLE Mech to store distance from origin as workaround for multisplit non-uniform densities
: 2011-09-18 Ben Suter, initial version per email from Michael Hines
: 2016-11-31 Ernie Forzano, changed suffix dist to savedist because import3d() and this mod file
: were referencing dist and causing compile error.
