How neurons can compensate for changes in cell size
This repository contains code that reproduces all figures from "Homeostatic plasticity rules that compensate for cell size are susceptible to channel deletion" by Srinivas Gorur-Shandilya, Eve Marder and Timothy O'Leary.

Reproducing figures in the paper
You will first have to download some data, available here and tell MATLAB where the data is using:
Then, in your MATLAB prompt, simply run the appropriate script to make the figure as you see it in the paper. For example, running
This project uses the xolotl neuron and network simulator, which is freely available for you to use.
