This is the README for the model associated with the paper:

Canavier CC. (1999).  Sodium dynamics underlying burst firing and
putative mechanisms for the regulation of the firing pattern in
midbrain dopamine neurons: a computational approach.  J Comput
Neurosci. 6:49-69

These model files were created by Dr Canavier.

This example (after reaching steady oscillation) produces trajectories
corresponding to Figure 5 A2. and Figure 6.

The out.gif file shows the time plots generated by the example:

Usage:
Simply auto-launch from ModelDB or compile the mod files under

MSWIN:
-----

Use mknrndll (change directory to the one expanded from the archive
and click "make nrnmech.dll").  Then run by double clicking the
mosinit.hoc file in a windows explorer.

MAC OS X
--------

Drag and drop the expanded folder from this archive onto the mknrndll
icon.  Drag and drop the mosinit.hoc file onto the nrngui icon.

Linux/Unix
----------

Change directory to the expanded folder and type these two lines:
nrnivmodl
nrngui mosinit.hoc

Once the simulation is started
------------------------------

Press the init & run button to generate the above figure.
