Rat Hippocampus CA1

The model of a dense reconstruction of rat hippocampus CA1 microcircuit was built using a bottom-up data-driven workflow, along the same lines followed to implement a cortical column (Markram et al., 2015). The network is composed of 42 morphologically and biophysically accurate neurons (24 excitatory and 18 inhibitory) divided into 13 morphological types and 17 morpho-electrical types, 156 potential pathways, and 7 intrinsic synapse types. The microcircuit is part of the Blue Brain collaboration with the Human Brain Project consortium, it is accessible as part of the hippocampus CA1 region model on the Human Brain Project Brain Simulation Platform.
