Status
Status of element in file
In progress, use with caution
Comment: Stable
Issue: Mapping only implemented for NEURON so far
Contributor: Padraig Gleeson
Description
As described in ChannelML file
Example of a synaptic mechanism incorporating multiple decay constants, e.g. when EPSC has a main rapid component, and a smaller 'tail' with a longer time course. Mapping exists currently only for NEURON
