This is the readme for the model associated with the paper: Yu J, Proddutur A, Elgammal FS, Ito T, Santhakumar V (2013) Status epilepticus enhances tonic GABA currents and depolarizes GABA reversal potential in dentate fast-spiking basket cells. J Neurophysiol 109:1746-63 These NEURON files were uploaded to ModelDB by Dr A Proddutur. NEURON is freely available at http://www.neuron.yale.edu These hoc files can replicate figure 11. A3 and B3. In order to replicate spike rasters from figure 11. Tonic conductance in basket cell template and TC value need to be changed according to methods presented in paper. Usage: Compile the mod files (nrnivmodl in linux/unix, mknrndll mac/mswin). Run the model by starting one of the hoc files, e.g. in linux nrngui fixed\ rseed\ Control\ -74\ spill_\ tonic\ 10uS\ with\ mossy\ kill.hoc For this one, click the "Custom initialization" and then the "Custom run" buttons. After about a half hour (on a 2013 MacBook Pro laptop) the following figures were generated: Changelog: 2022-05: Updated MOD files to contain valid C++ and be compatible with the upcoming versions 8.2 and 9.0 of NEURON.
