A quasi-three-dimensional finite-volume numerical simulator was developed to study passive voltage spread in vestibular macular afferents. The method, borrowed from computational fluid dynamics, discretizes events transpiring in small volumes over time. The afferent simulated had three calyces with processes. The number of processes and synapses, and(More)
This paper addresses two key concepts in device test program development: test class programming and pattern management. These are explored in the context of an open architecture test system, where the primary requirement is the flexibility to integrate externally developed capabilities into the system. Development against an open architecture test system(More)
A simple model for neuronal spike initiation is presented. It comprises two linear differential equations and is based on the work of Hill, Rashevsky and Monnier (Rashevsky 1933; Monnier 1934; Hill 1936). Three different versions of the model and the corresponding assumptions are described. The intrinsic noise model used with the deterministic equations is(More)
