A computational model of the rat subthalamic nucleus projection neuron is constructed using electrophysiological and morphological data and a restricted set of channel specifications. The model cell exhibits a wide range of electrophysiological behaviors characteristic of rat subthalamic neurons. It reveals that a key set of three channels play a primary role in distinguishing behaviors: a high-voltage-activated calcium channel (Cav 1.2.-1.3), a low-voltage-activated calcium channel (Cav 3.-), and a small current calcium-activated potassium channel (KCa 2.1-2.3). See paper for more and details.

TITLE passive membrane properties for STh

COMMENT
Temperature is going to effect the passive membrane properties.  How to
model this is difficult.  Kita do not recorded their temperature at
which they measure the membrane time constant, and Nakanishi who
measure input resistance perform their experiments at 36degC.
At present I will not implement a temperature dependence of this
component.
