The article by Michalikova et al. (2016) explores the generation of spikelets in cortical pyramidal neurons. The model cell, adapted from Hu et al. (2009), is a layer V pyramidal neuron. The cell is stimulated by fluctuating synaptic inputs and generates somatic APs and spikelets in response. The spikelets are initiated as APs at the AIS that do not activate the soma.
