  • A physiologically based multicompartmental computational model of a midbrain dopamine (DA) neuron, calibrated using data from the literature, was developed and used to test the hypothesis that sodium dynamics drive the generation of a slow oscillation postulated to underlie NMDA-evoked bursting activity in a slice preparation. The full compartmental model was reduced to three compartments and ultimately to two variables, while retaining the biophysical interpretation of all parameters. A phase… CONTINUE READING
