Homework 4 - Problem 2

2. Now we'll insert the synapse from the previous problem into a neuron and simulate the postysynaptic response to an input train of uniformly spaced action potentials. The differential equations describing the model are:
model equations

Use the following parameter values in your simulation:


Generate plots of the following quantities versus time (a) input spike train u(t), (b) synaptic conductance gex(t), (c) synaptic current Isyn(t), and (d) postsynaptic membrane voltage v(t).

Your output should look similar to the following plot.
