Stochastic Ion Channel Gating in Dendritic Neurons: Morphology Dependence and Probabilistic Synaptic Activation of Dendritic Spikes

Figure 1

Specification and visualization of ion channel location.

In PSICS individual ion channels have unique locations that can be viewed along with the compartmentalization chosen for a particular simulation using additional software called ICING. (A) Screen shot of ICING. (B) Detailed view of the compartmentalization of part of the model neuron in (A). (C) Low magnification 3 dimensional detail of dendritic branches from (B). (D) High magnification 3 dimensional detail of dendritic branches in (C) illustrating the location of individual ion channels.
