This work (published in "Timed synaptic inhibition shapes NMDA spikes, influencing local dendritic processing and global I/O properties of cortical neurons", Doron et al, Cell Reports, 2017), examines the effect of timed inhibition over dendritic NMDA spikes on L5PC (Based on Hay et al., 2011) and CA1 cell (Based on Grunditz et al. 2008 and Golding et al. 2001).

TITLE AMPA and NMDA receptor with presynaptic short-term plasticity 


COMMENT
AMPA and NMDA receptor conductance using a dual-exponential profile
presynaptic short-term plasticity based on Fuhrmann et al. 2002
Implemented by Srikanth Ramaswamy, Blue Brain Project, July 2009
Etay: changed weight to be equal for NMDA and AMPA, gmax accessible in Neuron

The Verbatim block is needed to generate random nos. from a uniform distribution between 0 and 1 
for comparison with Pr to decide whether to activate the synapse or not
