Re: Radial diffusion using RxD?

Yes, nested shells would be awesome! I can get away with a single outer shell for now, as concentrations in that shell are what I'm most interested in, but nested shells would definitely be of interest and very useful. Thanks!

Radial diffusion using RxD?

Is it possible to use the built-in RxD shells to support radial diffusion? I have only seen an RxD shell used as a membrane, and was wondering if they can also be used as segments of a section (i.e. multiple shells of a soma) as well.
Thanks!

Re: Different species parameters for different regions

On a completely unrelated note (and I'm only posting this because Rob told me to post about it to keep the issue relevant...), are you closer to making RxD such that you don't have to restart Python every time you change an RxD-related parameter? That would be awesome!

Different species parameters for different regions

What is the simplest way to allow a species to have different initial concentrations in different regions? Do I need to make two different "sub-species"? For example, I am working with a buffer "buf" that has a higher buffering capacity in the dendrites than in spines. I want to try having either a ...

Re: xpanel between python and hoc

Great - I just sent a toy model. Thank you!

Meanwhile I will look into your suggestions. One of the reasons I've been using python is to use the RxD module, but I'll look into making the morphology in hoc instead, and just using python for the RxD related parts.

xpanel between python and hoc

I made an xpanel for my model so that I can demo it for my collaborators. I found the translation between Python and hoc not so smooth though so I wanted to see if I was missing something. It seemed like all I would need to do is use "h.xvalue" to update constants, and then have my own initializatio...

Re: Recording *current through a channel (mechanism)

For anyone with similar questions - the issue was that I wasn't specifying the location along the section (as you would when referencing, say, the voltage). The following code does the job:

Code: Select all

icacar = neuron.h.Vector()
icacar.record(spinehead(.5)._ref_i_car)

Re: Recording *current through a channel (mechanism)

I have a follow up question. I can access the current at a given time now without a problem with: ica_car = spinehead.i_car However, I am still having trouble with the recording part. I suspect this is because the variable I reference is already specific to a section? But I am not sure. I am trying ...

Re: Recording *current through a channel (mechanism)

Ted, thank you for your quick reply. I did mean current (from which I'm ultimately calculating concentration, hence my slip up).

This is very helpful - I will try the (safer) second method you mentioned. And thanks for the reference at the end as well.

Recording *current through a channel (mechanism)

Is there a way to record the charge* of an ion that flows through a channel defined as a mechanism? I am trying to record the calcium current that enters a spinehead through a calcium channel. I am doing the same for an NMDA channel, which is simple enough since it is a point process: ica_nmda = neu...

Absolute tolerance scale in RxD

I have been getting numerical errors when simulating my model in RxD, and I think they are due to scaling within CVode. I've seen how to use the absolute tolerance scale multiplier for species specified in MOD files ( https://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/new_doc/simctrl/cvode.html#CVode.atolsca...

Re: Modeling extracellular space and a plasma membrane

Thank you, this is very helpful. I will just use a MOD file for the pump instead. I will follow up if we decide to look into your experimental package for diffusion in extracellular space. Thanks!

Modeling extracellular space and a plasma membrane

I have several questions regarding extracellular space and the plasma membrane using RxD. First of all, I've seen reference to extracellular space as a possible RxD conceptual region in the RxD documentation, but haven't seen an example of it actually defined. Is the best way to define it simply the...
