Harry Tran: Investigating tACS-induced neural entrainment in a computational model of morphologically realistic neurons
Please post questions here.
Very interesting research. I was wondering if you could elaborate a bit on the five different cell types on which you simulated the TACS effects. I think your results are consistent with TACS studies in monkeys
showing that TACS consistently influences the timing, but not the rate, of spiking activity
So each of the 5 cell type includes 5 various (but similar) neurons morphologies using multi-compartmental modeling (cable theory, Rall W. 1957). They are conductance-bases models implemented by the Blue Brain Project in the NEURON software. Each cell model includes dendritic ramifications (apical and basal dendrites) and axonal geometries.
The L1 NGC cells have a dense axonal arbor and L5 pyramidal cells have an early bifurcation apical tuft for example.
