Post by kazmer »


I have a simple question. How can I change a density of given channel in e. g. soma?

Discussed in chapters 5 and 6 of The NEURON Book. If you don't have the book, at least
read "The NEURON Simulation Environment", our first article in Neural Computation,
which you can get from the Documentation page

Examples of how to specify properties of a density (distributed) mechanism.

Code: Select all

varname_suffix = value // suffices for default section
// any of these will work for any specified section
secname varname_suffix = value
secname {
  . . . statements . . .
  varname_suffix = value
secname.varname_suffix = value
