A cable model of the linear properties of dendritic spines was generated using the Laplace transform technique. Analytical solutions for the voltages generated in the spine by a current impulse at the spine head were used in a numerical procedure for simulating the effect of a synaptic conductance change. The synaptic current produced by the conductance change was used as an input for evaluation of the postsynaptic potential and current injected into the dendrite at the base of the spine. The… CONTINUE READING
