The Neuron model envisions a three-compartment neuron with dendrite, soma, and axon compartments. This chapter describes the equations used to emulate macroscopic conductances arising from a large variety of sodium and potassium channels. In addition, equations for the electrotonic spread of current between compartments are presented.

Keywords:   length constant, time constant, electrotonic spread, sodium conductance, potassium conductance, inward rectifier, h current, postinhibitory rebound
