Demonstration of ORN model by Dougherty, Wright and Yew (2005) PNAS 102: 10415-10420. This program, dwy_pnas_demo2, simulates the transduction current response of a single olfactory receptor neuron being stimulated by an odorant plume. The program is interactive in that a user can tweak parameter values and stimulus conditions. Also, users can save a configuration in a mat-file or export all aspects to a directory of text files. These text files can be read by other programs. There is also an import facility for importing text files from a directory that allows the user to specify their own data, pulses and parameters.

Example use of the model files:

1)download and expand the zip file.
2)Start matlab.
3)Within matlab, cd to the directory created when the zip 
  file was expanded (for example I expanded the zip file in
  c:/nrnmodels):
  >> cd c:/nrnmodels/dwy_pnas_demo2/
  or alternatively add that file to your matlab path.
4)Run the program by typing the name at the matlab prompt

>> dwy_pnas_demo2
5) select single and press ok a few times to create fig 1a,1b
from the paper.
