Single compartmental, ball-and-stick models implemented in XPP and full morphological model in Neuron. Paper has been submitted and correlates anatomical properties with electrophysiological recordings from these hard-to-access neurons. For instance we make predictions about location of the spike initiation zone, channel distributions, and synaptic input parameters.

function a_db = XPPrange2CIPdb(filename, cip_times, cip_vals, props)

% XPPrange2CIPdb - Converts XPP model data to CIP measures database (i.e., extracts spiking measures in response to current injection).
% Usage: 
% a_db = XPPrange2CIPdb(filename, cip_times, cip_vals, props)
% Parameters:
%   filename: DAT filename obtained with the XPPAUTO's Graphics->Export
%   	data option.
%   cip_times: Start and end times of current injection [ms].
%   cip_vals: A vector of current injection (CIP) parameter values in the XPPAUTO
%   	simulation [nA]. At least provide a vector with the correct number of
%   	parameter values so the data file can be parsed. If there is only
%   	one trace, provide its applied current level as a scalar.
%   props: A structure with any optional properties.
%     recalc: If 1, overwrite DB file even if it exists.
%     Ihold: [nA] Specifies holding current if different than first step value.
%     dt: Simulation time step of recorded data [s]. Use dt*nout of XPP (Default=1e-3).
%     paramsVary: Structure with variable name associated with an
%     		array. If only one value is given cip_vals, use the
%     		values for this variable for the multiple trials found in file.
%     (others are passed to XPP2current_clamp)
% Returns:
%   a_db: A params_tests_db.
% Description:
%   Saves the database as a MAT file for loading later and it will skip
% generating the database if it finds an existing file.
