COMMENT
Derived from IClamp but triggered by a NetCon event. On each event, a
pulse of current with dur and amp is generated.
Since this is an electrode current, positive values of i depolarize the cell
and in the presence of the extracellular mechanism there will be a change
in vext since i is not a transmembrane current but a current injected
directly to the inside of the cell.
