This model was published in Letzkus, Kampa & Stuart (2006) J Neurosci 26(41):10420-9. The simulation creates several plots showing voltage and NMDA current and conductance changes at different apical dendritic locations in layer 5 pyramidal neurons during STDP induction protocols. Created by B. Kampa (2006).

new organisation of original geometry to make more user friendly
-the compartment called soma is really part of the axon that was
-an additional axon is added to this "soma" by ntscable, and therefore
 serves as an extension of the axon
-the reconstructed axon also includes dend1[0] to dend1[13]
-the real soma is dend1[14] to dend1[27]
-dend1[21] is the middle of the soma
-dend1[183] (beginning, ie, 0) is the dendritic recording location
