Model Name


Biophysical, perisomatic

Models with active conductances at the soma and morphology based on full 3D reconstruction.

1 Leaky Integrate and Fire (LIF)

Membrane potential evolves as a function of neuron properties and external current and is reset to a fixed value if it surpasses a fixed threshold.

2 LIF + Reset Rules (LIF-R)

LIF with biologically-defined afterspike threshold decay rules.

3 LIF + Afterspike Currents (LIF-ASC)

LIF with spike-induced currents to model long-term effects of fast voltage-activated ion channels.

4 LIF-R + Afterspike Currents (LIF-R-ASC)

LIF with additional Reset Rules and Afterspike Currents.

5 LIF-R-ASC + Threshold Adaptation (LIF-R-ASC-A)

All of the above, with an additional voltage-dependent component of threshold.

Please see See the perisomatic biophysical and GLIF technical white papers whitepapers for more details on how these models were created (TODO).

A cell's electrophysiology page displays all available models.  Choose a model to see its simulated response to all stimuli presented to the cell.  If the required sweeps are available, two model evaluation metrics are computed per model:
