Re: Modeling branching off of a soma compartment

Thanks for the reply. For cosmetic purposes it may be nice for proximal ends of neurites to be rendered as being contiguous with the surface of the soma, but in terms of simulation results their electrical attachments might just as well be at the center, or all from the same point on the surface. In...

Modeling branching off of a soma compartment

I'm a bit new to computational neuroscience and I'm having some trouble understanding how branching (especially off the soma) is modeled in compartmental models. Is there a standard way (or set of ways) to model multiple (more than two) compartmental connections to a soma? For example, in the Traub,...
