TITLE Sustained calcium current from plateau potential-firing rat olfactory glomerular neurons

: originally implemented by Maciej Lazarewicz 2003 (mlazarew@seas.upenn.edu)
: original title - Calcium high-threshold L type current for RD Traub, J Neurophysiol 89:909-921, 2003
: Modified by Arjun Masurkar to resemble HVA current in plateau-firing
: juxtaglomerular neurons

: changes: carev=35
: to change: IV curve should match (peak I at 0mv, activation similar to IT)
