Seeking Validation

Progress has continued smoothly on my class project. I’ve done one of the key validation steps in the project, and am just about ready to move on to the meat of the study.

What I did was to current-clamp the two different models, and compare this with the results of the exact same experiment in the paper that the models are taken from. Below, you can see the results:

Current Clamp Comparison

The top row contains snapshots of both types of model from the original paper. The bottom row shows my results for the same conditions. They’re essentially identical, although it’s hard to tell from the pictures in the original paper.

I still have a little more validation to do, but this is a pretty good sign.
