Ephaptic coupling in passive cable and MSO neuron models (Goldwyn & Rinzel 2016)
Download zip file
Help downloading and running models
Simulation code to explore how the synchronous activity of a bundle of neurons generates extracellular voltage, and how this extracellular voltage influences the membrane potential of "nearby" neurons. A non-synaptic mechanism known as ephaptic coupling. A model of a passive cable population (including user-friendly matlab GUI) and a model of medial superior olive neurons are included.
