# running
- the files in the mechanism folder need to compiled by NEURON
- use the NEURON gui to launch the file mechanism/run_act.hoc
- this will run the code with a current injection and save data on channels in the AIS and voltages accross the neuron to the data folder

# overview
- the mechanism folder includes mod files for channels as well as the main running file
    - files with "_stoch" in the name are stochastic
- main.hoc initializes everything
    - the morphology folder includes files detailing the shapes of different axons
    - density_mechs.hoc distributes the passive and active conductances through the NEURON
    - inject_soma.hoc inserts an IClamp at the soma and runs the simulation
    - loads a gui for viewing the voltage over time
        - recording.hoc defines methods for recording / saving data
    - mechanism/run_act.hoc runs and displays an example action potential
- the model is largely based on: (Hu, et al. 2009): "Distinct contributions of Na v 1.6 and Na v 1.2 in action potential initiation and backpropagation.", which was itself built up through several studies
    - the main change is the change to stochastic Na channels	
    - other minor changes are described in the paper (Singh & Levy, 2017) "A consensus layer V pyramidal neuron can sustain interpulse-interval coding."
