This is the readme for the model files associated with the paper:

Diba K, Koch C, Segev I (2006) Spike propagation in dendrites with
stochastic ion channels J Comput Neurosci 20:77-84

The mod and hoc files were copied from the authors web archive:
and had a mosinit.hoc and init.hoc files added so that they could be
auto-launched from ModelDB.

Usage: either auto-launch from ModelDB or compile the mod files and run under

by running "nrnivmodl" and then "nrngui mosinit.hoc" in the extracted

Mac OS X:
by dragging and dropping the extracted folder onto the mknrndll icon
and then dragging and dropping the mosinit.hoc file onto the nrngui


by running mknrndll and cd'ing to the extracted archive folder and
clicking make the nrnmech.dll and then double clicking on mosinit.hoc
in a windows explorer.

Once the simulation is running:

Click to choose one of two configurations used in the paper, one with
a voltage gated sodium conductance density in the dendrites of 27 and
the other with 14 pS/um.
