Re: Using NEURON to model a system of endocrine cells

Thank you so much, this helps a lot. I will try to create my own script inserting the mechanisms I have created.

Using NEURON to model a system of endocrine cells

Hello, I am new to NEURON (and programming in general) and I am working with my lab partner to build a model of pancreatic islet cells using previous models not created in the NEURON framework. These previous models didn't have a spatial component and my lab partner and I want to utilize NEURON to a...

Re: Using NetCon where voltage is not the threshold variable

Thanks Ted, We would like the hormonal concentration across our endocrine cells to most closely resemble a continuum with every cell being both a source of a hormone and sink of 3 hormones/reaction diffusion species (the hormone the cell secretes + the hormones secreted from two other cell types). T...

NEURONS v is different than mine

Hello, I am in the process of replicating two models in the NEURON framework to extend them in certain ways. At first I wrote one of the models into a single mod file. I didn't use NEURONs built-n v (membrane voltage), I wrote my own differential equation to calculate membrane potential, and I didn'...

Using NetCon where voltage is not the threshold variable

Hello, I am an incoming graduate student building a model of a network of endocrine cells and how the hormones they secrete affect each other. Using the NetCon object seemed like a great way to connect the different cell types and weight the connections. I want the cells to read the hormone concentr...
