Deep brain stimulation has been used for over a decade to relieve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, although its mechanism of action remains poorly understood. To better understand the direct effects of DBS on central neurons, a computational model of a myelinated axon has been constructed which includes the effects of K(+) accumulation within the(More)
Despite widespread use of electrical stimulation of hippocampal brain slices, the precise sites of action potential initiation and propagation are unknown. To better understand these sites, we modeled axon recruitment by coupling stimulation-induced electric potential fields to biophysical models of CA3 axon arbors in mouse hippocampal brain slices.(More)
