11. Preparing to change the name of a section. " To change these names, we must first change the base name as shown here. Click the Basename button. This pops up a Section name prefix window. Click inside the text entry field of this new window, and type the desired name. It is important to keep the mouse cursor inside the text field while typing; otherwise keyboard entries may not have an effect. After the new base name is complete, click on the Accept button. This closes the Section name prefix window, and the new base name will appear next to the Basename button.
L. 26. Bringing up a PointProcessManager in order to attach a synapse to our model cell. In the NEURON Main Menu, click on Tools / Point Processes / Managers / Point Manager, then proceed as shown in Fig. 27. 27. Configuring a new PointProcessManager to emulate a synapse. A. Note the labels in the top panel. None means that a signal source has not yet been created. The bottom panel shows a stick figure of our model cell. B. SelectPointProcess / AlphaSynapse creates a point process that emulates a synapse with a conductance change governed by Eq.
Verify that the Make Section radio button is on, and then perform the following steps. Place the cursor near one end of an existing section. Click to start a new section. One end of the new section will automatically attach to the nearest end of an existing section; the other end is tethered to the cursor while the mouse button is held down. Drag to the desired length and orientation. Release the mouse button. Our model cell should now look like Fig. 9. At this point some minor changes would improve its appearance: moving the labels away from the sections so they are easier to read (Fig.
