Analytical solutions to a multicylinder somatic shunt cable model for passive neurones with spines. (English) Zbl 0836.92005
Summary: A multicylinder somatic shunt model for spiny, passive neurones is considered. The spines are modelled as a continuum [after S. M. Baer and J. Rinzel, J. Neurophysiol. 65, 874-890 (1991)], coupled through the spread of dendritic voltage. A general solution is developed and a relationship governing the contribution of dendrites, soma, and spines to the voltage response is derived.
