Hi, I have been trying to construct a geometric model of the Morris and Lecar system. I've looked at the cable model excel spreadsheet that comes with the SNNAP8 program. There is an "Rm" membrane resistance of 10,000 and I am using this to ultimately determine a satisfactory leak conductance.
Does anyone know what this Rm value is for barnacle muscle fiber? I imagine it would be higher because the cell is very ingirl thingyted.

I done some checking, but can't find a reference where the Rm (specific membrane resistance) of barnacle muscle was determined. Morris & Lecar used 500 ohms*cm2 (i.e., 2 mS/cm2), but gave no rational for this number. Good luck.
