CbNeuronSt
The membrane voltage V _{m} is governed by
with the following meanings of symbols
C _{m} membrane capacity (Farad)
E _{m} reversal potential of the leak current (Volts)
R _{m} membrane resistance (Ohm)
N _{c} total number of channels (active + synaptic)
g _{c} (t ) current conductance of channel c (Siemens)
E _{rev} ^{c} reversal potential of channel c (Volts)
N _{s} total number of current supplying synapses
I _{s} (t ) current supplied by synapse s (Ampere)
G _{s} total number of coductance based synapses
g _{s} (t ) coductance supplied by synapse s (Siemens)
E _{rev} ^{(s)} reversal potential of synapse s (Volts)
I _{inject} injected current (Ampere)
At time t =0 V _{m} ist set to V _{init} .
The value of E _{m} is calculated to compensate for ionic currents such that V _{m} actually has a resting value of
.
If the membrane voltage V _{m} exceeds the threshold V _{tresh} the CbNeuronSt sends a spike to all its outgoing synapses and the membrane voltage follows a predefined spike templage during the absolute refractory period of length T _{refract} if doReset = 1 .
If the flag doReset=0 the spike template is not applied and the above equation is also applied during the absolute refractory period but the event of threshold crossing is transmitted as a spike to outgoing synapses. This is usfull if one includes channels which produce a real action potential (see HH_K_Channel and HH_Na_Channel ) but one still just wants to communicate the spikes as events in time.
The exponential Euler method is used for numerical integration.
