Simple compartment neuron model

Post by chalspark » Sat Sep 24, 2011 2:51 am

Hello everyone.

I have question about making computational neuron models.

What is exact input impedance value or range for simple and full morphology models?
In my experience, input impedance matching was most important in order to change full morphology neuron model to simple neuron model. I think that it is easy method to use same conductance value of each channels.

You know decreasing Rm or Ra reduce input impedance and increasing surface reduce input impedance.

If i cut off many dendrite in someone's full morphology model, it's input impedance will increase.

What is the best way to match input impedance? i.e. increasing diam? decreasing Rm or Ra?
