Help downloading and running models
The human auditory periphery model can simulate single-unit response of basilar-membrane vibration, IHC receptor potential, instantaneous AN/CN/IC firing rates, as well as population responses such as otoacoustic emissions, auditory brainstem responses. The neuron models (IHC, AN,CN,IC) can be run independently to relate their responses to electrophysiology, or be simulated as part of the human auditory periphery.

%this file runs an example simulation for a click stimulus of different
%stimulus levels

L=[0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100];
click_duration=10; % 100 us click
stim=zeros(numel(L),length(t)); %the simulation runs as long as the stimulus

%depending on the number of cores you have, you can run more or less stimuli in one simulation
%the dimensions are: conditions x duration (the code takes care of it in case you do the inverse)
for j=1:numel(L) 
%to set the amplitude of the stimulus, the digital 1 is multiplied with a
%Pascal value:
%   for rms: make a stimulus with rms of 1: multiply with p0*10^(L_{SPLindB}/20);
%   for pure tone: multiply A with sqrt(2)*p0*10^(L_{SPLindB}/20)
%   for condensation click in peSPL: multiply with
%   2*sqrt(2)*p0*10^(L_{SPLindB}/20);

%% load the starting poles (alpha*,30) for NH or HI models
%for a hearing impaired model, load other startingpoles e.g.:

%% set synaptopathy and store the results
% decide how many channels you want to store in the simulations ('all','half','abr')
% decide how many fibers you want to include to compute the CN and IC responses
% default: 13 HSR (70 spikes/s), 3 MSR (10) and 3 LSR (1) fibers (across all CF-channels) , you want
% to set CF-dependent synaptopathy profiles, insert a vector of size:   
    %1000x1 for 'all'
    %500x1 for 'half'
    %401x1 for 'abr'
% the indices should correspond to the CFs simulated for that condition (output(1).cf)
% run the model ones using default settings to write out the CFs, and then
% determine your CF dependent synaptopathy profiles.

% decide which responses you want to store: 
    % e= emission 
    % v= velocity 
    % i=ihc 
    % h=hsr 
    % m=msr 
    % l=lsr 
    % b=summed AN responses for each CF as well as CN and IC responses 
    % w=population response waves I, III, V
% to store all channels (1000)
% to store half of the channels (500)
% output=model2018(stim,fs,'half',1,'evihmlbw',1,sheraP,0.05,'vel',13*ones(500,1),3,3,1,[pwd(),'/']);
%store only the ABR channels: CFs between 112 Hz and 12 kHz
