Checking the units

Post by ziemek » Fri Jan 03, 2020 9:11 am

Hi!

I would like to control explicitly unites in RxD and I have 2 questions:
  • Is there any way to check units of parameters of RxD object?
  • What is the unit of Species d param (diffusion coefficient) ? I guess it's um^2/ms
Thanks for your help!

There are no automated unit checks (like modlunit for mod file) in rxd, however you can import constants from neuron.units to scale parameters appropriately, as noted in the circadian rhythm example.

Yes, the diffusion coefficient has units of μm²/ms.
