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:


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


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.


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


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

Once the simulation is started

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