We are investigating how dopaminergic modulation of single channels can be combined to make the D1R possitive MSN more excitable. We also connect multiple channels to substrates of a dopamine induced subcellular cascade to highlight that the classical pathway is too slow to explain DA induced kinetics in the subsecond range (Howe and Dombeck, 2016. doi: 10.1038/nature18942)

COMMENT

Activation curve was reconstructed for cultured NAc neurons from P5-P32
Charles River rat pups [1].   Activation time constant is from the
rodent neuron culture (both rat and mouse cells), room temperature 22-25
C [2, Fig.15A]. Inactivation curve of CaL v1.3 current was taken from HEK
cells [3, Fig.2 and p.819] at room temperature.

Original NEURON model by Wolf (2005) [4] was modified by Alexander Kozlov
<akozlov@kth.se>. Kinetics of m1h type was used [5,6]. Activation
time constant was refitted to avoid singularity.
