This model builds on the Jones 2009 model by using a more biologically accurate distribution of calcium channels on L5 pyramidal cells. Specifically, this model introduces a distance dependent maximum conductance (gbar) on calcium channels such that the gbar linearly decreases along the dendrites in the direction of the soma.
