Adding Dendrites and Synapses

  • David Beeman


In the previous chapter’s tutorial, we created a single soma compartment with Hodgkin—Huxley sodium and potassium channels. Your script for this simulation should look something like the one given in the listing of tutorial3.g in Appendix B. In this simulation, we will build upon this script in order to construct a multi-compartmental neuron with a dendrite compartment containing a synaptically activated channel, an active soma, and an axon.
