explaination of code creating dendritic spines

Hello, I am trying to understand this piece of code from a model by Z. F. Mainen and T. J. Sejnowski (1996): spine_dens = 1 spine_area = 0.83 proc add_spines() { local a forsec dendritic { a =0 for(x) a=a+area(x) F = (L*spine_area*spine_dens + a)/a L = L * F^(2/3) for(x) diam(x) = diam(x) * F^(1/3) ...

Hello Ted, thanks for the answer, hovewer, it brings up some more questions. 1. As I am new to differential equations as well, I would like to know how exactly did you get this n' = (ninf - n)/ntau from the equation dn/dt = alpha(v) (1-n) - beta(V)n I would like to undestand the whole derivative pro...
