Re: vext in extracellular mechanism

Dopamine neurons are pacemakers, so they do not need to be stimulated. Besides, the extracellular recordings
we are trying to mimic are in vivo. I do appreciate the offer of help, but I'll let Luciana follow up since she is doing the simulations.

Re: vext in extracellular mechanism

What we are trying to figure out is why Vext (and the LFP Luciana measures in LFPy) is so tiny when the actual measured extracellular potentials are on the order of a millivolt. We don't really care about the resistance of the extracellular medium, we are trying to figure out why the voltage measure...
