This collection of scripts are used to simulate IV curves from a layer
5 pyramidal cell from rat somatosensory (barrel) cortex as shown in

The scripts involved are:
* L5P_mainloop.g - The main simulation script that executes the setup
of the model and runs through the series of current injections.
*L5P_const.g - Constants and values used in the simulation.
*DS1_141099_rot2_sc_defmesh.p - The reconstructed neuron morphology.
*L5P_chans.g - Tabchannel definitions of ion-channels used in the
*L5P_comps.g - Protope compartments used for setting up the model.
*DiffRm.g & Hgradient.g - Functions to set up differentially
distributed values for Rm and H-current density.
*L5P_input.g & ExpInjCur.g - Scripts to set up (and provide amplitudes
for) current injection stimulation.
*L5P_graph.g - Creates direct graphical output of membrane potential
for entire morphology, somatic Vm, somatic conductances and somatic
currents. Graphic output can be turned off by commenting out line 40
in the main simulation script.
L5P_ascout.g - Script to write out somatic voltage traces to ASCII
format. ASCII output can be turned off by commenting out line 41 in
the main simulation script.
*DS991014IVPotential.asc - The experimentally recorded IV curves for
the modeled cell.
*plotVmIBloop.m - MATLAB script to plot the simulated and
experimentally recorded IV curves in the same graph for comparison.
