How to contribute a model:
Generic Cell Model
The goal of the present simulation is produce a simple model of a spiking neuron.
This model was used in many of the examples included with SNNAP. The model is not based on any given experimental data. Rather the model was intended to be a ‘generic’ neuron that can be easily adapted to any number of uses.
Luscher Shiner 90 Model
The purposes of this model are: 1) to test the ability of SNNAP to reproduce aspects of a model developed by Luscher and Shiner (1990); and 2) demonstrate a method for modeling branching structures.
Minimal Cell Model (MCM)
The minimal cell model (MCM) is a reduced Hodgkin-Huxley model that can exhibit excitable and oscillatory behavior. It consisting of two ordinary differential equations, dV/dt for membrane voltage and dW/dt for potassium activation and sodium inactivation). The MCM has a stable membrane potential of -60mV. With constant input current of 10uA/cm2, it exhibits oscillations of 150Hz.It is based on the work by FitzHugh and Rinzel.
