Synaptic conductance waveforms

Three waveforms for synaptic conductance: (a) single exponential decay with τ = 3 ms, (b) alpha function with τ = 1 ms, and (c) dual exponential with τ1 = 3 ms and τ2 = 1 ms. Response to a single presynaptic action potential arriving at time=1ms. All conductances are scaled to a maximum of 1 (arbitrary units).
