To run: either auto-launch from ModelDB or download and expand the
archive, compile the mod files (with mknrndll (mac or mswin) or
nrnivmodl (unix/linux)).  Start by double clicking the mosinit.hoc
(mswin), drag and dropping the mosinit.hoc on the nrngui icon (mac) or
by typing "nrngui mosinit.hoc" in the expanded archive (unix/linux).

Once the simulation has started press the "run simulation" button.
After a short time you should see a graph similar to fig 4B1 from the


20140310 An ar2 argument was added to a rate call in naf.mod so that
the model would work with a new version (1024) of NEURON whose C
compiler checks that the number of arguments in function calls matches
the number in the definition. The results of the simulation was
